A young married couple--both actors--work in Cold War Berlin before the Wall is built. Agnes is on location in East Berlin, and Jochen, her husband, works at the Westend Theater in West Berlin. They hold diametrically opposed views on politics, art, and the responsibility of the individual to society. They have vehement arguments and their marriage is in danger of breaking up. This film portrays numerous figures of contemporary German cultural and political life. 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 June 17, 1953. The director depicts the tightening grip of Stalinism on East German cultural production at this time

Unbeknownst to her former lover, Minna has also arrived at the inn accompanied by her lady's maid Franziska. In spite of the innkeeper's prying, the women cleverly set things right.

He then met the librettist Eugène Scribe (1791-1861), with whom he developed a working partnership, one of the most successful in musical history, that lasted until S

"Am 12. August 1961 wollen einige Bürger der DDR nach West-Berlin fliehen, doch als einen Tag später die Mauer gebaut wird, kommt ihr Unternehmen zu einem unerwarteten Ende. Während der an Zwischenfällen reichen Fahrt nach Berlin offenbaren sich die Charaktere der Beteiligten. Der [...] Film bezieht eine gewisse Wirkung aus den guten darstellerischen Leistungen; interessant ist er aus heutiger Sicht vor allem wegen seiner historischen "Brisanz" sowie der erkennbaren tendenziösen Versuche, sich mit dem Mauerbau im Film der DDR auseinander zu setzen."
