Considering the times, one great german picture
9 September 2002 | by wikingerpittSee all my reviews

After almost 35 years one has to look at DIE ENDLOSE NACHT as a truly brave production. Financed on a shoostring, with upcomming actors (H. Elsner) this one sticks out of all the other "lame" pictures of that year. Director & Producer Tremper wrote & directed a wounderful one-night-at-the-airport film. The famous Tempelhof airport is setting for six individuals who are stuck in the building, because of deep fog. No aircraft can take off. "Not even the Russians would dare to fly out" - quote. Shot in beautiful ultravision - cinemascope - with a sexy Jazz music by composer Peter Thomas, you can breath the 1960s mood of Berlin. Anyone who is interested in those times should not miss this b/w movie. Same setting is by the way in the V.I.P.s with Burton & Taylor...
