Film about the right to be entertained after the World War 2
10 April 2002 | by (Bochum, Germany) – See all my reviews

If you belong to those who dislike the triviality and banality of German film after World War II (like myself) then you should turn to those films who were made in a short period between 1946 and 1949. Many of them show the will not to just simply go on like nothing happened but to search for new forms of entertainment in the light of the war and the guilt of the german people. "Film ohne Titel" (Film Without a Title) is an interesting reflection about the rights to be entertained: Which stories can be told, when all stories seem to have been finished? It shows the attempts of a film crew to shoot a film. They offer several versions of one simple love story in different film form (melodrama or german expressionism) until they come out with the right form (which is this film itself). The film is entertaining and modern as well. Unfortunately questions of film form were not to be touched again until the seventies.
