Babylon Berlin ~ German Excellence In Film Making Is Back
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.
