Roman einer jungen Ehe / The Story of a Young Couple (1952) DVD5
A young married couple — both actors — live and work in Berlin before the Wall is built. Agnes is on location in East Berlin and her husband Jochen works at the Westend Theater in West Berlin. They hold diametrically opposed views on politics, art and the role of the individual in society, and their vehement arguments threaten to break up their marriage...

This film portrays numerous figures of early postwar German cultural and political life — including Veit Harlan, director of the notorious Nazi propaganda film Jud Suss, and Boleslaw Barlog, a famous West Berlin theater director. Also memorable in this film is documentary footage of the construction of Stalin Allee, the biggest boulevard built in East Berlin after WWII, soon to become a central locus of the popular uprising of 17 June 1953.
