A story about thousands of wild rabbits which lived in the Death Zone of the Berlin Wall. As if the green belt between the two walls was 'designed' for those animals - full of untouched grass, the predators stayed behind the wall and the guards made sure no one 'disturbed' the rabbits. They had been living there for 28 years, enclosed but safe. Unfortunately, the Wall fell down one day and the rabbits had to look for another place to live. The film is an allegory which brings closer the history

Shrewdly combining their own seductive images with archival materials, found footage and observations by artists, journalists and former wall guards, Konopka and Rosolowski create a bunny's-eye view of tumultuous change.
Teasing and shrewd, "Rabbit ŕ la Berlin" is a floppy-eared fable about the uneasy trade-offs between liberty and security.
Cunningly fashioning found footage into a rabbit's-eye view of events, Polish helmer Bartek Konopka creates a chillingly apt political allegory in Rabbit a la Berlin.
Nominated last year for a short-doc Oscar, the featurette is a lovely modern mini-myth, sarcastic and Beatrix Potter-y in turn.
Rabbit A La Berlin drags on in slow, nature documentary fashion, while its mildly allegorical plot only serves to belittle the real pain caused by the erection of the wall.
strikes an initially beguiling but ultimately compelling balance between narrative structure and documentary form; the comparisons to Werner Herzog's nature documentaries are not unfair
Creatively uses the animal parable. . .in a very original approach to history that is as thought provoking as it is amusing. . . by anthropomorphizing politics.
Pseudo-documentary about how politics affected rabbits living in the vicinity of the Berlin Wall.
