Synopsis

After surviving the perilous journey from Africa, Francis realizes how difficult it is to be righteous while undocumented in Germany. When he receives an enticing offer for easy money from a psychopathic gangster, Francis initially resists temptation, but is soon sucked into Berlin’s underworld.

Our take

This thrilling reimagining of the literary classic paints a vividly modern portrait of the German capital and its reality for immigrants. With a riveting performance by Welket Bungué, Berlin Alexanderplatz moves with shark-like menace through the sultry fluorescence of the city’s underworld.
