Six Decades - Six Iconic Films

This year, Goethe-Institut Hongkong celebrates its 60th anniversary. To mark the occasion, we have selected six iconic films from six decades: Films that inimitably capture the spirit of their time and shape it into images that have become part of our collective memory. Time and again, they feature Berlin, the divided city and, after the fall of the Wall, filled with a breathless, intense energy in which everything seemed possible.

We asked six film experts to tell us what makes these films so special even today - very briefly, because time is flying!
