1948

  • Nighttime Berlin is natural noir terrain, leading to a four-powers-unite ending in which symbolic bridges of communication are built, but Tourneur knows better: the final shot (a man on crutches with 1.5 legs making his way through the ruins) suggests a lasting peace is an impossible goal. Beautifully shot, commendably globally-minded in balancing national concerns, well worth rediscovery.
