7 Really Cool Movies About Berlin

There’s very few cities on Earth that have the cultural and historical significance Berlin has.

There’s very few cities on Earth that have the cultural and historical significance Berlin has. It’s been the focal point of many big moments in Western Europe and still today it’s one of the most amazing cities you can visit. It only makes sense that a city like that would be the setting for a couple of cool movies, wouldn’t it? 

Let’s take a look at some movies that show you Berlin at it’s finest.

Atomic Blonde

Not only is this an amazing movie, it also for the most part takes place in Berlin during arguably its most interesting moment in history: when it was split in half. And hey, this movie is basically John Wick, but with Charlize Theron. And it’s a spy movie. It’s a good time, just watch it.

Er Ist Wieder Da

Imagine if the person responsible for World War II came back in our modern society. That’s basically the premise of this excellent comedy movie. And while we don’t really want him to come back, it is pretty hilarious to see how modern society could respond to Nazi propaganda.

Good Bye, Lenin!

This is the story of a woman that goes into a coma in East Berlin before the wall fell, and wakes up in a unified Germany. The doctors however, say it’d probably be best if mommy dearest doesn’t find out Berlin has been reunited, so her son (who becomes Baron Zemo later in life) and some of his close friends recreate East Berlin inside her apartment to keep her from the truth. It’s a movie filled with lovely shenanigans and honestly just a top class movie altogether.
