First of all director Manfred Wilhelms made a movie to allow us search the original Potsdamer Platz. There is little, almost no movie material left about the original place. We receive to know the evolution of the zone and its liveliness from before 1920 until the center of Berlin was nearly fully destroyed in 1945. The original Potsdamer Platz was an extraordinary place, full of life until it was erased and it never became again what it was. What was it like? It is a past era, which for us is history now. A true tour tutorial appears and among his listeners a reporter. The tutorial gives us a nice insight into former East and West Germany and life connected to the zone of Potsdamer Platz, a large deserted area, a desert between the walls of the divided Berlin,then the zone becomes alive in interviews,old folks say their wonderful stories about the place. Wilhelms made it more then a documentary. Creating a fictive main character, a reporter ( Arno Lüning ) who gathers sounds and noises around and above the fresh Potsdamer Platz for his radio play, he manages to take us along into another dimensions. It becomes a story. Sometimes these charming photos become surreal and invite us to imagine what things should have been like. Sometimes it reminds us of 'Heaven above Berlin'(W.Wenders). Wilhelms creates with his squad and his camera a lot of various atmospheres and rhythms. The camera really searches staying with things and the spectator, nowadays everytime running to not miss something, may stay with what is happening. In natural slow rhythms, we discover, what we often miss , as modern life often means to run after things, where as things happen right in front of us, with us. It gets nice quick with some integrated artwork of Fred Walther, a filmmaker himself. This movie is an epic investigating and searching what really was and what is actually , that preserves the act of reconstructing the zone with the face of the fresh Potsdamer Platz and todays life, with a reporter appearing again and again, partly beyond time, passing over a flair. Due to the fact, that it will be a mirror into the past for coming generations Wilhelms avoided to slash the movie shorter than 320 minutes. It was shown and well appreciated at the Berlinale 2001, on Arte TV, as well as on another festivals.
