The Second Track

Station Inspector Brock witnesses a robbery. When he fails to report one of the culprits, he starts experiencing flashbacks of his earlier failure to take a stand against Nazi persecutions.

The Second Track was screened at The Museum of Modern Art in 2005 as part of the film series Rebels with a Cause: The Cinema of East Germany. It is the only East German film to explore the theme of former Nazis leading normal lives in the GDR - something authorities said only took place in West Germany. This sensitive subject matter was one reason why the film was rarely shown in East German theaters.

A rather lifeless effort. One and a half stars.
