Franz Biberkopf is an unforgettable man: his tender, good -natured side contradicted by moments of shocking violence. Released from prison following a four year sentence for the manslaughter of his girlfriend, he plans to make a new start and a decent life for himself. But a chaotic, decadent Berlin of the 20's is not th easiest place for an ex-con to go straight and work is hard to come by. When Franz becomes fascinated by Reinhold, a psychotic small-time crook, he is soon drawn back into a world he cannot escape.

Fassbinder's staggering 15 hour epic is a monument of late 20th-century filmmaking and considered to be the director's masterpiece. Following a massive restoration project overseen by the original editor, it is now available for the first time on DVD.

Berlin Alexanderplatz

Great edition. Great price. If you haven't seen BERLIN ALEXANDERPLATZ -- do it. If you like it and want to own it, look no further than Second Sight's beautiful DVD release.
