Phoenix, a moody post-Holocaust noir, stars the formidable German actress Nina Hoss. It's cowritten and directed by Christian Petzold, who shepherded Hoss through 2012's taut East-West thriller Barbara . Like the latter film, Phoenix finds its protagonist moving anxiously along the borders of postwar Germany, telling lies as if she believed them. Unlike Barbara , though, which took place in 1980 with the Stasi's informants everywhere, Phoenix is set in Berlin immediately after the Allied Forces' liberation of the camps.

Wide receiver Jerry Rice's return probably won't happen until the San Francisco 49ers open the season against the New York Jets Sept. 6. Rice, attempting a comeback from two serious knee injuries that sidelined him for all but two games last year, said yesterday he expects the 49ers to hold him out of all five exhibitions. "I don't think the coach is going to take a chance on me in the preseason," Rice said. Coach Steve Mariucci said he has told Rice he doesn't think it's worth the risk to play in preseason games when he could ready himself just as well through training-camp workouts.

This is the beginning of Shawn Bradley's next challenge. It involves making a comeback. Dr. Jack McPhilemy, the 76ers' orthopedic consultant, is "guardedly optimistic" that Bradley will be fully able to resume his NBA career next season. Bradley, out for the remainder of this season after suffering a dislocated left kneecap and bone chips in his knee Friday night in Portland, is expected to begin a rehabilitation program later this week or early next week. That will start after the 7-6 rookie center recovers from Sunday night's arthroscopic procedure, during which McPhilemy evaluated the joint surfaces, removed a bone fragment and drained excess blood.

ALLENTOWN - The 19 red seams inked on the inside of Alec Asher's right elbow take the shape of a baseball each time he flexes the arm. Asher had the tattoo done when he was 16. It is the lasting reminder of a promising career that almost ended before it really began. Asher, who will take the mound for the Phillies in his major-league debut on Sunday, had Tommy John surgery when he was 14. The baseball seams cover a surgeon's scar that was once an ugly shade of purple. Asher's elbow burned out at a young age from overuse.

MOST PEOPLE recognize pet overpopulation, cruelty and animal fighting as animal-welfare issues, but there's one that many don't think about or may even consider cute. We're talking about extreme physical traits, such as the excessively flat faces seen in many Persian cats, bulldogs, Pekingese, pugs, Boston terriers and other brachycephalic (short-nosed) breeds. Snorting and snoring, or the undershot jaw of the bulldog or boxer, are often thought to be endearing characteristics. But when those traits cause animals to gasp for air after minimal exertion, develop heatstroke or even die from exposure to heat and humidity, it's no life for a dog - or cat. It's not great for their humans, either, who pay high veterinary bills to treat their animals or lose them to an early death.

It takes a special kind of narcissist to make herself the victim in a story about her own mother's suffering. Chaucer might have called it "The Caregiver's Tale," while Dante no doubt would have reserved a special place in hell alongside the similarly self-obsessed. My place was seat D110 during People's Light and Theatre Company's production of Jonatha Brooke's one-woman show My Mother Has 4 Noses . Brooke's mother, Darren Stone Nelson, led a fascinating life in a religious subculture.
