0Emmanuel: Well, Germany has a rather limited repertoire of actors, due to its rather limited size, in comparison to the US. Imagine the situation in Austria, for that matter! The same actors, over and over, in virtually every movie.
Sadly, the best Austrian movies tend to be closely connected to local customs and dialect, so one cannot safely recommend them to an American audience, and I'm not sure whether subs/dubs are available. Also, they tend to either come with pitch-black humor, or just pitch-black. With that in mind, the movie versions of Wolf Haas' crime fiction series are incredibly great, and one can't deny that Michael Haneke
is a genius. Don't watch his films unless you plan on committing suicide anyway... You have been warned!
Also, The White Sound, starring Daniel Brühl. Astonishingly thoughtful exploration of a young man tumbling into paranoid schizophrenia.
As for actual German movies, practically the only one that immediately springs to my mind is Run, Lola, Run
Oh wait, I just found this list
