Quotes

Dr. Martin Richter: Professor, I came here because I need you. You told me to come to you when we were in Dachau.
Johannes Koenig: I do not remember what I said when I was in Dachau. Leave me alone. I'm tired. Go away.
Dr. Martin Richter: Professor, don't you realize. This is the hour we've planned and waited for. Now, we can fight!
Johannes Koenig: Fight? Fight for what? Maybe for the rebirth of Germany? Maybe you still believe there are some good Germans left?
Dr. Martin Richter: Yes.
Johannes Koenig: Amazing. Have you seen them? Where are they? Maybe he's here? Maybe, maybe, maybe in the closet? ...

"Nazis never change."
3 July 2014 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Interesting movie about the goings-on of various characters at the Hotel Berlin near the end of WWII. Specifically the search for a member of the German underground who has escaped from a concentration camp. Not surprisingly, this is from the author of Grand Hotel. Unlike the film adaptation of Grand Hotel, this one doesn't have an all-star cast but it does have a cast of solid character actors. Raymond Massey and Faye Emerson are standouts but really the whole cast is good. Peter Lorre steals the few scenes he's in. It's a pretty good though not great WWII movie with a unique setting and some frank (for the time) talk about concentration camps and the Holocaust. Also, if you ever wanted to see Alan Hale as a Nazi, here's your chance.
