KREUZBERGED: BERLIN COMPANION

Everything You Never Knew You Wanted to Know About Berlin

CELLULOID BERLIN: TOMORROW AT THE ZEUGHAUSKINO

Tomorrow on May 20th at 8pm the “Zeughauskino” at the German Historic Museum will be showing the 1962 Franz Harnack´s film adaptation of a classic of German literature: Hans Fallada´s “Jeder Stirbt für sich Allein” (the not exactly politically correct or fair Anglo-Saxon title is “Every Man Dies Alone”).

The story of a middle-aged, working-class couple who after their son´s “heroic death” for the Nazi “Vaterland” begin their own little anti-regime campaign is a must for anyone interested in history, literature and / or Berlin. On second thoughts, it´s a must for everyone.

Particularly when shown for free:-)

"Jeder Stribt für Sich Allein" film still from the 1970 mini-series by the East German DEFA studios.

        Something tells me you will have a lovely evening today:) You are probably recording the 1974 version, with der Knef? Fantastic film!
