Germany Year Zero

Directed by Roberto Rossellini

1948

Germany Year Zero is an Italian-language drama about a child in post-war Berlin. Germany Year Zero is a tiresome and trite exercise in manipulative sympathy. The film’s refusal to take seriously the stakes of politics and its ambivalence in condemning the Nazis are problematic.

Would not see.
