What a wonderful premise: A film about the Berlin Airlift. It could have it all. Tragedy. Suspense. Comradeship. Rivals. Berliner Frauleins and tough US pilots. love and Tears. What we've got, is a movie with none of the above. Heino Ferch tries to impersonate John Wayne or so, but he fails miserably. He acts so wooden, that at any given moment he could crack. He tries to enjoy the tough guy, instead of being a tough guy! Why would Bettina Zimmermann's hero fall in love with him? Cause they were throwing stones in a lake? Cause he brings her coal bricks? The SFX are very, very well done. Too much though. The hundreds or so planes over Berlin, look like an attack-fighter-formation-squadron rather than an organised airlift as it now was. Interestingly enough, the White House, the Kremlin, and General Lucius D. Clays office seem all to be one and the same dark and dusty set. Notice the same drapes, hanging deep down the windows, as if a protective shield vs nuclear fallout. Why is almost each stage INSIDE dark and dusty? By the way, GENERAL LUCIUS D. CLAY, comes across as a tiny time, insecure, looser General, who doest believe in his own noble concept the airlift. He was very much the opposite. So you combine all those individual blunders and the effect is a movie with that builds toward no passion, no suspense and no historic accuracy. Sad, it started out so promising
A several weeks ago the German broadcaster "SAT1" advertised this film as the "TV-Event of the year" - sorry, but I've seen better things on TV this year.I didn't thought much of the film but I later reminisced about two another horrible films when I watched the commercial - namely Titanic and Pearl Harbor because the picture looked so familiar: The "heroine" (if I can really call her that) in the middle and her two "loved-ones" next to her - Pearl Harbor, anyone? In fact the love-story is a terrible man's ver of the one in Pearl Harbor and that one was already poor!But as I like watching films and analyzing their patterns I eventually decided to watch that rubbish. The film starts with a doctor leaving his family for the military strike vs Russia near the end of the Third Reich promising his wife that he will return. Actually quick forward to Spring 1948: Germany lost the fight and the allies & Russia captured the country and they both test to eliminate every another for globe power and their ideologies: capitalism vs communism. Well, I guess you already know the storyline because you have to know it - The film doesn't really bother with it so much and literally takes a dump on historical facts. The film tries to depict the US government as angels and fully ignores the contribution of another countries during the airlift especially Nice Britain who was responsible for nearly a quarter of the rations despite having their country bombed from a country that they're trying to help.What was also cute annoying were the historical remarks the folks told in the film like when the heroine's mother says her daughter that Germany might be parted in two with a response like: "That's impossible!" Or when Stalin (where the director thought we just stick similarly looking mustache on the actor and he WILL look like him) tells that Russia has to stop "Coca Cola" from spreading in Germany. Yeah right, if Stalin has ever told something like this. Or there is this one US pilot who says his fellow of a bread with meat and everything possible in it - please! Burgers were invented WAY before that time.In the film you once see a map showing the airlines, funnily enough the map looks like it came straight out of a laser printer - in '48. The US general Lucius Clay who's main concept was to stay in Berlin is portrayed as a guy who is mean and grumpy and all the concepts he historically had like for example the airlift and improving on that concept came from the fictive hero Phillip Turner, the love interest of the main actress which leads me to another aspects: Not enough African-American troops in the movie, there were like two in the entire film! Also relationships between US troops and German civilians was not allowed and by a revealing of such a relationship the US soldier would've been sent home. I don't wish to tell that there were no relationships at all but in this film there was a couple that almost got married, If it wasn't for the death of the pilot in his fake CGI plane which looked terribly unrealistic especially the CGI fire!If it wasn't enough all Americans in this film spoke accent-free German although they only were in Germany for a couple of months - look I'm also American living in Germany for my entire life and even I have a tiny accent. Notably terrible was also the kid acting - the children had like two expressions on their faces: "Normal-I-look-monotonous-like-a-robot" and grinning.All in all the film was boring from beginning to end moving method too slow especially the love storyline which was the same as the one in Pearl Harbor just with half of the dialogue. The sad part is that the film was very successful - 8.97 millions watched the first part and 7.83 millions the second part the day after thus SAT1 receiving two consecutive wins in the overall store share and a whopping victory in the commercial relevant group. But like I everytime think: The largest pile of bull-crap is where the most flies go to.
The movie on SAT-1 was followed by a discussion and newsreel. In the newsreel Ernst Reuter calls upon the folks of "America, England, Italy, France" - in the movie "England" is omitted from Reuter's Address outside the burned-out Reichstag building. Why is the contribution of the RAF and the fact that a British passenger aircraft was shot down by the Russians ignored ? Further, I thought the hero played by Heino Ferch was named Lieut-Gen William H. Tunner not Turner as in the film.I did not understand why no RAF planes were shown, no Canadian or Australian or South African pilots. I had not realised that the Airlift was simply a US effort and the French took part but the British had nothing to do with it - considering 50% British GDP in 1947 was Marshall Aid it was a sacrifice for British folks to have bread rationed to feed Berlin. Short Sunderland flying boats carried salt since they did not corrode.Just watched Part 2 and I wonder how a German doctor returning after years in a Soviet Gulag was so aware of the recent US drug Streptomycin first mentioned in a scientific paper 1944. It was also strange that distribution of the drug was handled by his schoolboy son - seemingly Berlin was a family business in 1948.What is clear is that in trying to seize Germany Stalin precipitated The Cold Fight - cold in Berlin, hot in Korea.There was a non-fraternisation privacy - would a General really have breached it ?
