Product Description:

Following the conclusion of World War II a former concentration camp resident returns to Berlin to find her apartment occupied by a doctor. Refusing to give up her apartment, the woman moves in and develops a relationship with the man, who is obsessed with assassinating his former commanding officer. A classic film noir.

Plot Synopsis:

This landmark German film examines an entire nation's attempts at atonement for the atrocities carried out prior to and during the Second World War.
Amid the rubble of Berlin a young doctor lives a tortured existence. He suffers from hallucinations due to the time he spent in a death camp, witnessing the mass exterminations committed by the Nazi regime. When he meets his former captain, who ordered these killings, and who has now settled down to raise a family, the doctor plans to kill him.
But then he wonders if this is the morally correct choice, after all.
