A strong German mini-series from the stable of Lumière. ‘Berlin 59’ (or Ku’damm 59) is now available in the Movies & Series Pass of Proximus TV.
A solid storyline, a historical slant, and beautiful images that take you to the Berlin of the late 50’s. If you like music in the ears, is Berlin 59 a mini-series that you don’t want to miss.
Berlin 59 takes you to a dance school in the chicest street of West-Berlin: the Kurfürstendam. The storyline is easy to understand and get acquainted with the characters, it doesn’t hurt to look first at the precursor of this mini-series: Berlin 56. Therein you see how the conservative Caterina Schöllack as a single mother in a household with three daughters and a reputable danceschool runs. Her biggest concern: her daughters to the man, and for that she wants a lot by the fingers.
Three years after the events of that first mini-series we return to Berlin. Caterina and her three daughters try each in their way a life to build during the economic recovery of Germany after the second world WAR and the rise of the women’s movement.
Don’t be fooled by the sweet pastel colours of the poster. Berlin 59 has a strong narrative with the necessary grim twists and turns, and enough drama to get your attention.
