5.0 out of 5 stars Cold War Intrigue...! August 6, 2010
Format:DVD
I like this movie and have been waiting for it to be released for a long time. For those who remember the aftermath of WW2 and the Cold War this is a step back to those times when the 4 Powers governed Germany and Austria. The military police jeep patrols that prowled the city streets were comprised of an American, a Russian, a Frenchman, and an Englishman....one each of the 4 powers.
This is the story of one of those jeep patrols and the refugees that want to escape to the West and out of the Russian Zone.
Not an Academy Award winner, however it is an important piece of history back when the Russians tried to rule Europe and the West tried to prevent it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Darn Good Espionage Noir November 10, 2010
Format:DVD
While most of us remember the separation of post-war Berlin into "four zones" controlled by the Allied powers, let us recall that Vienna suffered the same fate. Film buffs who have seen Orson Welles' "The Third Man" know this. A less well known film carefully depicting the world of post-war Vienna is this little known picture of devastated Europe. An Austrian prisoner-of-war has escaped from the Russian Zone and is desperately trying to burst out of the communist section to make it safe to freedom (or) his lovely wife. She enlists the aid of a sympathetic man of the American Military Police. Is he trying to help or is he more interested in the woman for himself? On the trail of the escaped man is the Russian counterpart of the American MP, a military officer named Voroshenko. The exchanges between the four patrols of the occupying powers (English French, Russian, & American) is the heart of the film. This is a world with no heroes - no villains - each man morally divided as the city is physically divided.

What makes this movie memorable is the fantastic location shooting and the beautiful allure of Swedish actress Viveca Lindfors.

5.0 out of 5 stars My father in law was in this area during the war January 28, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
My father in law heard of the book and was wondering if there was anyway he could get the dvd. I told him I could probably find it on Amazon and sure enough there it was. I know he really enjoyed the dvd because he served in this area during the war.

4.0 out of 5 stars superior drama June 10, 2011
By WSH
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
There are moments watching this film that you are tempted to give up in frustration. The film, you see, is a highly polished piece of cinema, with a story that pulls you in, and a fine cast, but the sound track in places is barely audible. The picture, too, shows its age. But you persist and, in the end, the rewards of the filming-making overcome the shortcomings of this particular release.

Be aware also that the joint Swiss-American production has a lot of non-English dialogue, which is not very well subtitled.

I agree with the other reviewers who admire the location shooting in Vienna and make favourable comparisons with The Third Man. In some ways, this film is a superior document of those times; the scenes at the railway station where families are greeting returning ex-POWs are very powerful. Viveca Lindfors, who plays the faithful wife waiting for her husband to be released, gives a convincing and nuanced performance in a role that binds the documentary and dramatic elements of the film.

The DVD contains, as an extra, a propaganda film made in 1945 for US servicemen stationed in occupied Germany, explaining why they must never trust Germans. It is an interesting document of its time, although the transfer is awful (jerky images).
