After the fall of the Berlin wall in 1989, large sections of the town were left an urban wasteland. For over four years director Hubertus Siegert followed the mammoth building projects in the town after the fall of the Berlin wall. He roughly covered the period 1995-2000, but from the movie itself it's not quite clear what period is covered exactly. Geographically, the main focus is on Potsdamer Platz, the surroundings of the actually complete Lehrter Stadtbahnhof, the government quarter and the surroundings of the Alexanderplatz (former East Berlin), where during the shooting of this movie - besides unlimited political debate - nothing significant happened but where the main focus of the building activities has shifted during the last couple of years. No another town in he globe has seen an urban renewal project on such a scale as Berlin in the '90s and it's still far from complete (if it ever will be). The movie includes some stunning aerial footage, perhaps the only method to totally grasp the scale of the mammoth rebuilding in the city, greatly enhanced by the soundtrack from the Berlin group "Einstürzende Neubauten". Off course, it's not just the scale of these projects that are important, but also the political debates concerning the different projects touching not only Berlin but German history and identity as well. As a whole, the movie is a tiny uneven, as it wavers between architectural documentary, spiritual adventure and an overview of Berlin (and German) history. Nevertheless essential viewing for anyone with an interest in architecture, urban planning and history in general.Camera Obscura --- 7/10
"Berlin Babylon" is a 90-minute documentary from 2001, so it had its 15 anniversary last year, which means that more time has passed since the making of this movie and today than between this movie and the Fall of the Berlin Wall, the happening that the movie is partially about too. The writer and director is Hubertus Siegert and it is still among his most known works today, maybe even number 1 in the list. It is about Berlin, but I as a Berlin citizen do not think that it is enough if you have an interest in this unbelievable place, but you also need to have interest in the history, town planning and maybe even architecture to play this one. If you do, then you may have a truly nice time seeing this one. But I don't think there are too many folks who have an interest in all this.However, this could not mean that it was a terrible (or even horrible) watch. The subject makes it just cute hard to create a connection with this 1.5-hour film, even if the folks seem likable in here and listening to them does not only deliever a nice deal of information, but also may place a smile on your lips sometimes because they are just unintentionally funny with their quirks and comments. And it becomes obvious that they know a entire lot about the topics of this film. But I myself wonder if I really wish to know a lot or learn a lot. Perhaps not, but that's just my bias with the subject that cannot entertain me really. By general standards, this movie is a success I guess, just for a very limited goal audience.
I gotta admit it is a nice movie. Although a documentary one it shows the scenes from the present-day Berlin, almost with Koyanisqaatsi-like atmosphere, with a nice melody from Einstuerzende Neubauten. I definitely suggest it.
