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.

About the beautiful series Babylon Berlin
26 November 2017 | by wcconeSee all my reviews

A wonderful series that connects fiction with real historical facts and human characters.

It has captured the spirit of that time through a very balanced story-line. Wonderful acting. At last after almost 100 years, German cinema proves with this series, it has found his artistic know how, which it possessed when Fritz Lang and so many other often Jewish artists made Germany the capital of the seventh art-form. The board walk Empire of Europe
