I saw Die Spur führt nach Berlin last night, and it's really good. Especially people living in Berlin will have a lot of fun. For young folks like me it's interesting to see Berlin how it was 7 years after WW2, with all the ruins and the Tiergarten park without trees. For old folks it will be a journey back in time. Very amusing were the appearances of Hotte Buchholz and Günther Pfitzman, who later became big stars in Germany. The story deals with false money, old Nazis and the beginning of the cold war. We see the shadow of the war still hanging over Berlin, but the citizens start rebuilding their city. The film is shot in b/w on a technically high level, very American Style. A must for Berliners!
