Berlin

"Recommended. After the fall of the Berlin Wall, Berlin captured the world's interest. A massive rebuilding effort is under way, simultaneously introducing innovative architecture into the city's landscape and restoring historic landmarks. This program presents viewers with a chance to discover a day in the life of Berlin, as well as what makes this city great. Extensive interviews with a official who designed the prototype for the Berlin Wall's placement and an industrious snack bar entrepreneur, who has developed a reputation for her version of curried sausage, a traditional Berlin favorite, provide opportunities to learn more about how the city's Communist past impacted local customs and ways of life." -EMRO Review
Berlin is Germany's third most-visited city, after Munich and Frankfort, and certainly its most famous, having captured the world's interest with the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989. With 23 distinct districts Berlin is too large to be explored solely by foot; so this outstanding documentary is the perfect "insider's guide" to this extensive, cosmopolitan city. Here we find historic sights, such as the Federal Chancellery, the Reichstag Parliament Building, and the city's trademark, the Brandenburg Gate, have been maintained; also other treasures include German-style dining at Konnopke's and Kneipens, the Berlin Philharmonic, Ka De We's department store, and Tiergarten Park, where we are reminded that Berlin is also called "Little Istanbul," due to its large Turkish community. 05/08DE JSCA 52 min.
