Das zweite Gleis

Streaming Video - 2014 | German
Rate this:
Station Inspector Brock witnesses a robbery. When he fails to report one of the culprits, he starts experiencing flashbacks of his earlier failure to take a stand against Nazi persecutions. The second track was screened at The Museum of Modern Art in 2005 as part of the film series Rebels with a cause: the cinema of East Germany. It is the only East German film to explore the theme of former Nazis leading normal lives in the GDR, something authorities said only took place in West Germany. This sensitive subject matter was one reason why the film was rarely shown in East German theaters.
