  • Trolley Freak's rating of the film The Murderers Are Among Us

    One of the first films shot in the ruined streets of post war Berlin portrays German war guilt in a melodramatic manner but with an undeniable power that kicks like a mule. Knef, in her first starring role, plays a concentration camp survivor sharing her apartment with a guilt-ridden doctor who has turned to alcohol as a coping mechanism. An essential and absorbing document of a defeated nation in its darkest hours..
