Germany Year Zero

Allemagn Zero

In the summer of 1947, Italian director Roberto Rossellini made this disturbing post-war classic at original locations in the devastated city of Berlin. The film tells of a frail 12-year-old boy who is robbed of his childhood by the terrible aftermath of the war. Through his portrait of his young protagonist, Rossellini also provides some penetrating insights into the disastrous effects of National Socialism on the collective German psyche.
