Review
In the ruins of post-WWII Berlin, U.S. Army war correspondent Jake Geismar becomes embroiled with Lena Brandt, his former lover, whose missing husband is the object of a manhunt by both the American and Russian armies. Intrigue mounts as Jake tries to uncover a myriad of secrets, and not just those of the uneasy allies but Lena herself. It would seem only Tully, an apparently lowly car pool driver with some impressive black market connections, is in a position to provide an escape from the imminent East/West divide, but the risks are considerable. The Good German is an uneasy adaptation of Joseph Kanon's novel, but if you ignore its genesis, the film works well as a brooding dramatic thriller.
