While going through the movie list for Moscow Internation Film Festival I’ve noticed that the name Konrad Wolf appears a lot and is often associated with high ranking films. I decided to do a check on IMDb and here is what I found.
Konrad Wolf was originally German, but left for USSR with his family. He returned to Germany in 1945 as an officer in the Russian Army (German fighting German nazi). He has made a number of films, mostly war related.
Here is a list of his movies which are rated above 7:
- Lissy from 1957, ranked 7.4/10.
- Sterne from 1959, ranked 8.9/10.
- Ich war 19 from 1968, ranked 8.4/10.
- Sonnensucher from 1972, ranked 8.3/10.
- Der Nackte Mann auf dem Sportplatz from 1973, ranked 9.3/10.
- Mama, ich lebe from 1977, ranked 8.8/10.
The big question now is where can I find any of these movies here in Cyprus? And with English audiotrack or subtitles?
