THE MURDERERS ARE AMONG US (DIE MORDER SIND UNTER UNS)
(1946, Germany, 85 min., English subtitles)
Scr. and Dir. Wolfgang Staudte
A doctor, haunted by his service as a Nazi, falls in love with a camp survivor but is compelled to seek vengeance on his commanding officer. The first German film to directly deal with the wounds of World War II. Stark, symbolic, and stunning. Hildegarde Neff and Wilhelm Borchert star.
(1948, United States, 87 min.)
Scr. Harold Medford, from a story by Curt Siodmak. Dir. Jacques Tourneur
The first American film shot (partially) on location in Allied-occupied Berlin tells the fictional tale of a German scientist being stalked by assassins on a train bound for a United Nations conference. An effective postwar thriller, beautifully shot. Robert Ryan and Merle Oberon star.
