A Woman in Berlin

A 2008 German film based on an anonymous 1959 book that shocked Germany. Set in Berlin as the Russians take over in 1945, the film tells the story of a German female journalist and of German women in general in occupied Berlin, dealing with rape, loss of honor, defeat, and the extremes some go to to survive.

First rate, contemporary, hard to watch.
