Described as ‘perhaps the greatest film ever made’, Germany Year Zero is a little known neo-realist masterpiece. Renowned Italian director Roberto Rossellini filmed a cast of non-actors amidst the ruins of war-devastated Berlin just two years after the end of WWII. Young Edmund (Edmund Moeschke) attempts to provide for his family against multiple privations and threats, but the desperate situation eventually brings him closer to tragedy. A deeply affecting, rarely seen and timeless portrait of conflict and collapse. 78mins, rated M
