Inspired by Italian Neorealism, this movie seemingly encapsulates 1960â€™s youth in the GDR, East Berlin. Shot on location, predominantly in Prenzlauer Berg, this work is not a response to post-WWII devastation or identity like Italian cinema. This film is unique; its own narrative and singular testament to time and place. The youth are familiarly dissatisfied and disconsolate, but are not rebellious and alienated like their Western counterparts. There is an underlying energy questioning freedom and the future. Through the body language and understated camera movements, you feel the restlessness nagging the protagonist (Whatâ€™s next? Is that all there is?). The director was never able to finish the film, so itâ€™s obviously left open-ended. This is a poetically resonant, uncorrupted work, inadvertently preserved since it was banned upon release and not reissued until 1990.
