The original that The Tourist  was remade from. French thriller / romance: just okay.
 
 
Romance, poetry, biopic period piece, Goethe: yes.

Bleak Norwegian drama about a 1915 boys reformatory / prison; Bastoy Residential School, staring Stellan Skarsgard and a cast of fine young lads. Strong nautical theme, shifting P.O.V..

Steven Soderbergh has perfected the craft of weaving score and montage, and this slick, trim, 90-minute thriller features a fabulously tough Gina Carano. Loved it!
