"I saw this in the theater with a friend who (like me) has a very high tolerance for obscure,messy film.We both left the screening saying,'What the hell WAS that?' "- RV

Amir Soltaniis covering the Berlin International Film Festival.Two new reviews today.

ALONE IN BERLIN (Pérez)
Alone in Berlin,adapted from the novel ‘Every Man Dies Alone' by Hans Falada and directed by former actor Vincent Pérez,is about justice,and you best believe that.The film wants you to know this so badly that it goes out of its way to shoehorn into the film a scene in which,one character tells his wife,"I have a mistress whom I obey,and her name is justice."In another scene,a man proves his son's involvement in the war by showing a picture of him in uniform in Poland,holding a dead child,as though he's a trophy hunted on a Safari trip.If these examples pain you with their lack of subtlety,you won't be delighted to know that they are only two of many,many instances in which the film throws its themes forcefully in your face.

Otto (Brendan Gleeson) and Anna Quangel (Emma Thompson) are a couple living in Berlin during the second world war.The film opens with a battle scene,in which their young son is shot to death on the field.Back in the German capital,to cope with the grief,Otto begins to write small anti-regime postcards,calling for a free press and the downfall of Hitler,and locate them at random places across the city with the help of his wife.As the cards begin to gain more attention in the repressed environment of the time,the Führer gets understandably upset,and Kommissar Escherich (Daniel Brühl) is assigned to find the culprit.[More...]
