The concluding chapter of Roberto Rossellini's War Trilogy is the most devastating, a portrait of an obliterated Berlin seen through the eyes of a 12-year old boy.

3 editions published in 1990 in German and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This film tells the story of a 12 year old boy who works with increasing desperation to support his family in war-torn Germany. He kills his sickly father, and then, unable to live with such a deed, kills himself. Filmed shortly after WWII in Berlin, a place filled with starving people, rampant crime, and a generation confused by the role their fathers played in one of history's greatest tragedies. Rossellini took people off the streets of Berlin to play the characters in this, his last Neo-Realist film. This film poignantly captured the impoverished state of Berlin at that time
