Audience Reviews for Berlin Express

That stupid and completely un-cinematic voice over kills the entire first half of an otherwise stunning looking thriller by a master filmmaker who loved shadows and camera angles.

I have not seen too many 1948 movies. Most interesting thing about this movie is that it seems they used actual footage of bombed out Frankfurt and Berlin as backdrops to the movie. The movie is quite idealistic - five people from five different countries try to rescue a German peacemaker just after WWII.
