Storyline

A metropolis in turmoil. From economy to culture, politics to the underworld - everything is in the grip of radical change. Speculation and inflation are already tearing away at the foundations of the still young Weimar Republic. Growing poverty and unemployment stand in stark contrast to the excesses and indulgence of the city's night life and its overflowing creative energy. Gereon Rath, a young police inspector from Cologne, is transferred to Berlin in order to solve a criminal case - a porno ring run by the Berlin Mafia. What at first glance appears to be simply a matter of extortion soon reveals itself to be a scandal that will forever change the lives of both Gereon and his closest associates. Together with stenotypist Charlotte Ritter and his partner Bruno Wolter, Rath is confronted with a tangled web of corruption, drug dealing, and weapons trafficking, forcing him into an existential conflict as he is torn between loyalty and uncovering the truth.

Trivia

The door-less elevators at the Berlin police headquarters are what is known as a "Paternoster lift". The lift consists of a continuously moving loop of low-speed elevator cars, one half moving up while the other half moves down. Common in European buildings prior to World War II, a large number of these have been preserved in Germany. Most surviving lifts are however no longer in general use due to their obvious safety issues. See more »

Babylon Berlin ~ German Excellence In Film Making Is Back
3 February 2018 | by blackcat-76687See all my reviews

I was quite aware of the history of German film making which excelled up until the 40's. Babylon Berlin has shown me that the German film industry is not in limbo anymore, but is now making a major comeback with such wonderful mini-series as this one.

The cinematography, acting, set designs are just superb.

I can not get enough of this great series.

To the directors, actors and film crews I want to thank you all for this masterpiece and keep up the good work.
