I saw the trailer maybe 6-8 years ago. May have been a German language movie - the trailer was in English.

Post-apocalyptic. People hiding from very harsh sunlight. Kind of Mad Max.


Sounds like Hell (2011), a German movie directed by Tim Fehlbaum.

From Rotten Tomatoes:

As the sun scorches the Earth, threatening to wipe out all life on the planet, desperate survivors Philip, Marie, and her younger sister Leonie race to reach a water reservoir rumored to be nestled deep in the mountains. Making the acquaintance of a lone mechanic named Tom as they head towards the mountains in a specially outfitted car, the trio must fight for their lives after being drawn into an ambush.

    English-dubbed trailer here. In my humble opinion, the German original sounds better so it's the one which will stay in the answer. And for what it's worth, this is a great unknown movie. – Jenayah Oct 9 '18 at 20:25

    By the way, "hell" means "bright" in German, but obviously a German audience will also be familiar with the english word "hell", so this is a pretty clever title for the setting of the movie. – Jörg W Mittag Oct 10 '18 at 6:55
