Following Rome, Open City (1945) and Paisan (1946), Roberto Rossellini turned to the ruined city of Berlin to complete his trilogy of films exploring the destruction wrecked by World War II. A devastating portrait of an obliterated post-war Europe, Germany, Year Zero is also one of the most affecting films about childhood in the history of cinema.
