Banned by DEFA during the Warsaw negotiations
29 April 2006 | by gjmorrisSee all my reviews

Keep in mind when viewing this film that it was actually produced and set for release in 1958, not '72. DEFA banned the film because of its content regarding uranium and the nuclear arms race. The film was made while this was a hot topic, but for international diplomacy reasons, the film was banned so as not to interfere with Warsaw negotiations. Taken as a 1958 film, and not a '70s film, it becomes much better for comparison to other Konrad Wolf films and serves as a much better example of national film within the GDR at the time. As an earlier Wolf film, then, the presence of anti-fascist ideas and propaganda for the socialist state is quite present. This type of content dropped off in later Wolf films.
