Movie Info

An African immigrant struggles to make a new life for himself in the big city in director-co-writer Burhan Qurbani's (We Are Young. We Are Strong.) audacious, neon-lit reinterpretation of Alfred Döblin's 1929 novel. After surviving his perilous journey, Francis vows to be a good man, but he soon realizes how difficult it is to be righteous while undocumented in Germany -- without papers, without a nationality, and without a work permit. When he receives an enticing offer for easy money from the psychopathic gangster Reinhold (Albrecht Schuch), Francis initially resists temptation, but eventually he is sucked into Berlin's underworld and his life spirals out of control.

Critic Reviews for Berlin Alexanderplatz

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (7) | Rotten (10)

  • [Qurbani]'s "Berlin Alexanderplatz" is a nice place to visit but you might not want to live there for three hours.

    April 30, 2021 | Full Review…
  • A heavy-handed re-imagining.

    February 29, 2020 | Full Review…
  • The episodic, sometimes almost soap-operatic nature of Qurbani's storytelling sacrifices a great deal of thematic depth for a great deal of eventing instead.

    February 26, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Instead of building to any sort of climax to justify its three-hour runtime, Berlin Alexanderplatz spins out into infinity, confusing circuity for world-building.

    June 6, 2021 | Full Review…
  • The basic story remains a long, cruel downward slide of degradations and injustices. But Qurbani lends it considerable style and energy, his updated cautionary fable further made palatable by lead Bungue's charisma...

    May 27, 2021 | Full Review…
  • The new Berlin Alexanderplatz is worth seeing and at times is moving. The director clearly wants to encourage social debate. But the film squanders opportunities and fails to place its finger on the wound.
