Soon meeting up with many of Pit's acquaintances, the film follows various intersecting lives as they are woven to create an intricate, microcosmic look at life's ups and downs as seen through the eyes of Germany's youth. However, they are forced to leave their beloved home, by the Government and airport authorities.
The movie depicts the events following DJ and producer Ickarus' Paul Kalkbrenner institutionalization for drug abuse. It depicts his notorious lack of discipline, his carefree lifestyle, and the rock star-like status he attained during his lifetime. Not surprisingly, given the era in which the film was made, political discussion is largely limited to the tragedy of war. Only swastikas on uniforms and planes serve as stark reminders of National Socialism. The film takes place in the fall of in SO36, a neighborhood in West Berlin adjacent to the Berlin Wall, shunted into a corner and largely ignored.
It is home to an oddball community of Bohemians and outsiders who pay little mind to the world around them.
Frank Lehmann Christian Ulmen is a bartender who serves beer at nights to the motley citizens of SO36 and is oblivious to most everything except his lackadaisical pal Karl Detlev Buck and his ill-tempered girlfriend Katrin Katja Danowski. A visit from Frank's parents throws his simple life into disarray, especially since his letters home led them to expect a far grander life than he's leading, and with this sudden chaos in his life, Frank barely notices that big things are happening on the other side of the wall.
DVD BR Barefoot, surviving monsoons, leeches, and machete-wielding villagers, he was rescued. Now, near 60, living on Mt. Tamalpais, Dengler tells his story: a German lad surviving Allied bombings in World War II, postwar poverty, apprenticed to a smith, beaten regularly. At 18, he emigrates and peels potatoes in the U. Air Force. He leaves for California and college, then enlistment in the Navy to learn to fly. A quiet man of sorrows tells his story: war, capture, harrowing conditions, escape, and miraculous rescue.
Where did he find the strength; how does he now live with his memories? A conflict arises between undercover reporter Fahd Moritz Bleibtreu , a con with a hidden agenda, and the apparently mild-mannered Berus Justus von Dohnanyi , a guard with a megalomaniac streak. The film begins as a psychological drama as ordinary people settle into the game, with joking displays of resistance by the "prisoners" greeted with increasing brutality from the "guards," but detours into suspense and horror as Fahd, who needs the experiment to get out of hand in order to make his story more saleable, deliberately ratchets up the tension between the factions only to see the situation spiral nightmarishly out of control as various test subjects in both camps edge closer to snapping.
A Academy Award nominee for best foreign language film, this German historical drama stars Bruno Ganz Wings of Desire as Hitler, whose psychic meltdown is depicted in sobering detail, suggesting a fallen, pathetic dictator on the verge on insanity, resorting to suicide along with Eva Braun and Joseph and Magda Goebbels as his Nazi empire burns amidst chaos in mid While staging most of the film in the claustrophobic bunker where Hitler spent his final days, director Oliver Hirschbiegel Das Experiment dares to show the gentler human side of der Fuehrer, as opposed to the pure embodiment of evil so familiar from many other Nazi-era dramas.
This balanced portrayal does not inspire sympathy, however: We simply see the complexity of Hitler's character in the greater context of his inevitable downfall, and a more realistic and therefore more horrifying biographical portrait of madness on both epic and intimate scales HO About her privat life and her fights for and against her Country and Herself.
Sehmuz Duzgun Ayhan and his wife, Delal Fidal Firat , are a Kurdish couple who have fled political persecution in their homeland and are seeking asylum in Switzerland for themselves and their three children. While Sehmuz's authentic tale of woe would seem to be enough to convince Swiss authorities to allow him to stay, his friend, Aziz Nurettin Yildiz , confronts him with the ugly truth that 90 percent of Kurdish refugees are turned away by the Swiss government on the grounds that their claims don't appear plausible. Aziz, who is also seeking asylum in Switzerland, has hired a "storyseller," who for a price will manufacture a tale with appropriate documents to match that's likely to convince immigration authorities to grant a exile residency papers.
Delal is opposed to this notion and tells Sehmuz that he should tell his interviewer the truth, but Sehmuz decides Aziz is has a point, and sells many of the family's valuables to pay a storyseller Walo Luond to spin a believable tale for him.

The staged rocket works as planned, but the acceleration is fierce. As they approach the Moon, they discover a stowaway on board, Gustav, a little boy It's a milestone of sci-fi and German expressionism. Yet the story makes minimal sense, and the "theme" belongs in a fortune cookie; to experience the film's pagan power, you have to see the movie. But for decades we couldn't, not really--not with so many versions, all incomplete, often in public-domain prints like smudged photocopies.
This Murnau Foundation restoration changes all that. Some shots, scenes, and subplots may be lost forever, but intertitles indicate how they fit into the original continuity and the characters' individual trajectories. Most crucially, the images are crisp, vibrant, and three-dimensional instead of murky and flattened.

The composite sequences the Tower of Babel, a sea of lusting eyes have been restored to their hallucinatory ferocity. And there's one moment when you can see a bead of sweat roll down a man's cheek--in medium long-shot. Tracy is superb, and the film is uncompromising, until studio interference takes some of the wind out of Lang's sails right at the end.
But as the portrait of a character who comes to reflect the destiny he is trying to avoid, this is still essential Lang and a pre-noir classic. The plot involves the child of an English nobleman. When his father rebels against King James, the king has the child's face carved into a permanent grin.

Philbin's Phantom co-star, Lon Chaney, was originally slated to play the lead in this film but studio battles prevented it and Veidt, who came over from Germany to act in Barrymore's The Beloved Rogue, stepped in. Both Veidt and Philbin give rather good performances, particularly Veidt who, due to makeup, could only use the upper half of his face to express emotion. A young poet Wilhelm Dieterle, who became Hollywood director William Dieterle is hired to pen "startling tales" about three figures on display in the Wachsfigurenkabinett.
Somehow he and his boss's daughter Olga Belajeff win plum roles in each fantasia he concocts. The Arabian Nights episode, featuring Emil Jannings hamming it up as Caliph Haroun al-Raschid, boasts demented architecture and a blend of comedy and surrealism that inspired Douglas Fairbanks's Thief of Bagdad. Conrad Veidt, making a memorably mad Russian icon of Ivan the Terrible, towers amid episode 2's fiercely angular compositions. Then, still-unnerving double-exposure cinematography is used to bring "Spring Heel Jack" Werner Krauss's version of Jack the Ripper out of the realm of fantasy and menacingly into the real-world framing story.
At first, Jettel refuses to adjust to her new circumstances she brought with her a set of china dishes and an evening gown , while Regina adapts readily to this new world, forming a strong bond with her father's cook, an African named Owuor.

Galileo made himself one of the world's first telescopes and discovered the moons of Jupiter. He supported Copernicus' theory that the Earth revolved around the Sun. This brought him in conflict with the Catholic Church. By threatening him with torture, the Church forced him to recant his views in front of a tribunal, and sentenced him to house arrest. However, Galileo's trials and theories inspired others like Newton and Kepler to prove that the Earth was not the centre of the Universe.
Some years ago, the Pope accepted that Earth does revolve around the Sun and issued a rare apology for what the Church had done to Galileo, i. His coworker, Margaret Sullavan, feels the same, and soon they are both corresponding and falling in love with their respective pen pals. What they don't realize is that they are writing to and falling in love with each other, but the problem is that they can't stand each other in person. The beguiling nature of the mistaken identity formula that influenced countless films is done to perfection here, and the wry combativeness and delightful banter between the two leads makes this a very special film.
