Berlin 36 Reviews

October 3, 2011
Not all true stories are created equal, as Berlin '36, which unfolds with such a singular lack of dramatic heft as to almost defy logic, amply demonstrates.

Whatever the facts of the case, "Berlin 36" doesn't clear the bar for dramatic impact.
September 15, 2011
Tasteful to a fault, "Berlin 36" turns real-life controversy into disappointingly tepid drama.
September 13, 2011
The lack of new insights on the subject of National Socialism's wickedness ultimately reduces a well-staged film to a historical footnote.

Kaspar Heidelbach's Berlin 36 may hold the dubious distinction of being the most tasteful movie to deal with Nazi Germany yet.

Strong performances keep the film involving despite its pedestrian, workmanlike production.

While this dramatization of a heartwrenching story is never less than fascinating intellectually and the actors are adroit, the screenplay by Lothar Kurzawa is choppy and at times slightly clichd. It's as if someone has sat on the dramatic arc.
