    It holds a strong impact due to its devastating subject matter, with also a beautiful score and Montgomery Clift in a wonderful Oscar-nominated performance, but it starts to become more like a melodrama after its excellent first hour and the dialogue more and more artificial.

    Great looking film in war torn Germany. It's about a holocaust surviving kid who's wondering around Berlin alone and befriends a G.I.(Monty). Monty takes him in teaches him English,how to drive,etc... It's Keith's wet dream.
