But in 1989, as the original film neared completion, the Wall came down, and McElwee and Levine were in Berlin again, this time to capture the radically different atmosphere of the reunified city.

So when watching "Something to Do with the Wall" at first I had to re-acclimate my mindset to a slower more pensive one. But as the film unfolded I saw that the footage he and his wife got was really mesmerizing. When they shot at the wall in '86 and '89 it was such a momentous time. You really feel the simmering dissatisfaction in '86. It is a perfect time capsule. And in '89 it is so fulfilling to see everyone chipping away at the wall. The sounds of the hammers and the smiles popping through cracks in the wall from the Eastern side are really moving. This film a great way to really get a sense of what it was like in Berlin in the '80s. (At least one facet of it.)

There was no point - other than shots of westerners looking over the wall to original Potsdamer plate, did not show impact of the wall on east and west.Published 10 months ago by H.J.
I really enjoyed this documentary. I visited the Berlin Wall and went through Check Point Charlie in November 1987. This program took me right back to that time.Published 12 months ago by CapsFan
