A piece of German post-war history
9 March 2013 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

The film is based on a true story. The film does not show how the story ended, but Rosemarie Nitribitt was murdered in 1957. The killer was never identified, and there were theories of a cover-up in highest places.

The film itself captures the atmosphere of post-war Germany, materialistic, repressive, hypocritical, conservative. The sensitive use of camera and lighting manages to capture the contrast between an extreme Technicolor effect in some scenes and the gloomy street scenes in others. Heiner Lauterbach is the wealthy businessman who falls for the streetwise Rosemarie played by Nina Hoss, Til Schweiger plays the pimp Nadler.
