The movie explains Germany from 1913 until 1955 by example of two contrary characters: The idealistic journalist Hans (H.-J. Felmy) loses his work during the Third Reich, whereas opportunist Bruno (R. Graf) makes career to himself in the NSDAP party. After World War II ended, Bruno manages to be indispensable to the US administration and becomes a successful and well respected businessman, despite his Nazi-past. At the same time, Hans tries to earn a living on the countryside. But one day a time will come when both men will meet again. Written by showdown

Beautiful, shamefully overlooked film
25 June 2003 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

A film strong and beautiful enough to live in my memory many years after the one time I saw it in college. It presents a highly atmospheric tapestry of comedy, drama and sweeping photography depicting life in postwar Germany, and is eminently deserving of release on video (or DVD). Its emergence in revival is extremely rare; what goes?
