Die Spur führt nach Berlin

František Čáp West Germany, 1952

josé neves's rating of the film Adventure in Berlin

Let's forget the traditionalist correction, little heady and too illustrative, to focus on what really matters: an adventure in a broken world, the post-war Berlin. A real scenario occupied by film dramaturgy and découpage, as in Rossellini's "Germania Anno Zero", and an astounding finale of persecution and shooting through the numerous labyrinths and spaces of a Reichstag in ruins.
