Germany after World War II
21 June 2019 | by yeter1905See all my reviews

This movie contains more detail and content than its average watcher will notice. I think the main goal of the movie is to broadcast the suffered soul of Germany after the second World War. Fatih Akin executed every detail very carefully in order to admit to its goal. Think about the music, chosen characters, all typical German behaviours, the drinks, the clothes, the haircuts and even the unobtrusive posters in backgrounds of scenes. Really great job over there! If you have the chance to compare the screen set with the original location you will definitly get suprised how well-executed this make-over is. I couldn't recognize any make-up on the face of the actor playing the lead role of Fritz Honka. Credits to the make-up team!

Back to the story.. Don't forget about the rising number of prostitution work during the war days. The soldiers coming over across Europe had to have some fun though. Most of those ladies ended up in a bad environments after the end of the war. Its basically a story about them as well. If you watch carefully you will see a lot of signs, traces, tattoos and srachtes of life on their skins. Akin tried to make us understand that those ladies had seen something in their past and they are probably not scared of anything what can damage them anymore.

Fritz Honka is a lonely man who hunts on those kind of woman. Probably because of his lack of socialability.

We can definitly say that this is one of the best German movies ever. Try to watch it with the right glasses on and understand the content of the movie before starting judging about the rough scenes.

Fatih Akin, keep going!
