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 (12) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (4) | Rotten (8)

  • [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…
  • There is much to admire about Qurbani's ambitious reimagining of Berlin Alexanderplatz, but despite some strong performances and visual flair, I'm not entirely convinced Franz Biberkopf should have ever left the Weimar Republic.

    May 1, 2021 | Full Review…
  • It's almost as if the movie has adopted Francis' mantra; it keeps promising to be good before collapsing into formless decadence, losing itself and possibly an audience along with it.

    May 1, 2021 | Full Review…
  • Exhausting and exhilarating, these desperate characters re-birthed from the Weimar Republic novel and Europe's colonies won't stop dreaming, and can't be forgotten.

    April 30, 2021 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…
