Movie Info

German director Gerard Klein's still-influential 1957 drama Berlin Schoenhauser Corner represented the nexus between two key cinematic movements: the European neorealist drama (exemplified by Umberto D. and The Bicycle Thief) and the postwar youth film, exemplified by Rebel Without a Cause and The Wild One. Incredibly daring for its time, the picture follows the exploits of a group of rebellious teens in Communist-controlled East Berlin, Germany who gather regularly on the titular street corner to engage in anti-establishment activities such as listening to rock 'n' roll, swapping American merchandise and rebelling against totalitarianism. Ilse Pagé, Ernst-Georg Schwill and Harry Engel co-star.
