The unforgettable classic about the fate of the Nazis in Post-War Germany
A man and a woman return to war-torn Berlin to face the harsh realities of post-war Germany. Susanne Wallner is a concentration camp survivor who, despite unspeakable experiences, is filled with a new desire to live. She wants to move back into her Berlin apartment, where Dr. Hans Mertens has taken up residence. He is a former officer and surgeon in the German army who finds himself unable to deal with the haunting memories of his role in the war. Through Susanne's caring, the Berlin man gathers new strength and courage, but discovers that the shadow of his past cannot be avoided.
The first feature film produced in Germany after World War II, it was made under the auspices of the newly created DEFA Studios and features the budding star Hildegard Knef. Its film noir style is a successful mixture of expressionist traditions and an accurate documentary point of view. Ranked by critics in the top ten of Germany's 100 most important films.
