Irgendwo

Irgendwo

Somewhere in Berlin was German director Gerhard Lamprecht’s first postwar film, made just months after the  cessation  of hostilities. This Heimkehrer (home-­comer) story takes a child’s perspective, with the people of the shattered city portrayed with precision and psychological realism. Young Gustav, Willi, and their friends find the rubble of Berlin to be a perilous, adventure-­filled playground, perfect for thrilling games of hide and seek. For Gustav, it helps pass the time, as he longs for his father's return from a POW camp. One day a stranger arrives, looking helpless and hopeless . . .  85 minutes
