Berlin in Films

There are a lot of Films which have been set in Berlin and the most famous in this period are related with Ostalgie (nostalgia for aspects of life in East Germany).

Very famous are Der Himmel über Berlin (by Win Wenders), Goodbye Lenin, Sonnenallee and Das Leben der Anderen (The Lives of Others), as well as Lola Rennt (Run Lola Run).

Ostkreuz (very drammatic, directed in 1991),  Sommer vorm Balkon (1994), Berlin Am Meer (2008), Die fetten Jahre sind vorbei (2004), Boxhagener Platz (quite hard to understand for the strong dialect dialogues).


Some of those films will never be translated and will never leave germany, but if you live in Berlin, they can help you to understand where do you live and the history behind this city.

Here there's a complete list: WIKI (english) and WIKI (german)
