A young American serviceman, stationed in Germany after the fall of the Third Reich, jeopardises his position with the Marshall Plan relief effort by breaking the non-fraternisatiom rule and falling in love with a young German woman. He uses his position to obtain food and luxuries for her that are in short supply, and all seems to be going well for the couple. What he doesn't realise is that the Werewolves, the Nazi guerrilla movement, have plans in which he features heavily.Written by

"House of Bambou": a man infiltrates into a bunch of former GIs turned criminals.
"Run of the arrow":a confederate ,after the fall of the south ,leaves his people and wants to live with the Indians.
"The naked truth" : a prostitute tries to join the "respectable" world and works with disabled children.
"Shock corridor" : a journalist ,dreaming of a big scoop ,gets admitted in a mental hospital to unmask criminal but is slowly losing his mind....
There are more Fuller movies which deal with the "intruder" subject ,the "hero" who wants to get out of his world ,and "Verboten" is one of them.An American sergeant fights in Germany;a young girl saves his life and he falls for her .The war comes to an end ;not only he wants to marry her ,but he also wants to live in Germany where an embittered youth is dreaming of another "Reich" -a burning subject even today-He has to cope with angry starving Germans who want to get rid of the Americans whose help is humiliating.In spite of unbearable pictures (Nuremberg),the movie is not as convincing as the five movies I mention above .The part of the girl is underwritten and it's difficult to understand her motives.Maybe Fuller wanted her to be an ambiguous figure.
