Low budget Nazi exploitation in a beginning of a dark era
27 September 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I looked up the actor who played Hans,Emil Lohkamp. The info I got is that ,unless this is misinformation, He's still alive. Over 100.My guess he did more stage work cause he did less films. Two movies and two t.v.shows.Paul Wegner probably at this time was being naive about the Nazis or he was being mislead.Later he would work against the Nazi's his way.He portrays a political correct head,Commillo, of a political correct commune.Hans is a student on vacation, some where. I don't know what the place, He's drinking and celebrating at Fritzies out door café and beer garden.He just met two American visitors. A business man and his daughter,Maude played by Carla Bartheel, and her Popsy,played by Heinz Salfner.Later he goes to a flop house to sleep.When he comes home and opens his suit case his mother, played by Gertude De Lalsky, sees the picture of Maude.He's a member of the Nazi party and this is before mustache has stolen the vote. The communist and the Nazis are fighting against each other for power in Germany.Every time both starts a debate at a town hall it ends in a fight. When one or the other parades their view points it turns into violence Hans meets his girl friend Maude and her Daddy and decide to take them out to a Wiemar night club.At the club he sees a bunch of Russian visitors asking the orchestra leader to play a Russian waltz. This angers Wes , so he goes up to the orchestra and stops them from playing it. He's fed up with his country controlled by the political correct. He can't enjoy himself at the night club in Berlin. So he leaves her and him. And goes to the cemetery to pay tribute for the Huns who lost the war.He is concerned , with his friend , about Germany being in the depression.Well being a Nazi himself he goes to the meetings and they make more plans against the political correct. He becomes a tax driver. When he is going in to Grettles bar he rescues a fellow Nazi women, I don't know if she's a spy from the correct. As they are talking she's in some kind of trouble,but, he gives he some money.This women is later forced to be a spy for the political correct against Hans. Well The Nazis are winning and the Correct are p-t off. They want to get rid of Hans.With the help of Mrs Salm, played by Ottie Dietz , who tells him that he's at her room. As both S.S Frauens friends Agnes and Klara, one of them was the forced spy, played by Irmgard Willers and Grete Reinwald. The political correct surprise him and shoots him. His friends ends up taking him to the hospital.The Correct find out and attempted to murder him,but his Nazi friends watch him at the hospital.He ends up dead. Well the correct tries to stop his funeral and fails. By this time Hitler is chancellor and the murders begin. Although it's available at Reichs Kino and war films dot com .I.H.f. has a excellent print for original elements ,I think. 09/28/11
