Synopsis:
Franz Biberkopf (Günter Lamprecht) is an unforgettable man: his tender, good -natured side contradicted by moments of shocking violence. Released from prison following a four year sentence for the manslaughter of his girlfriend, he plans to make a new start and a decent life for himself. But a chaotic, decadent Berlin of the 20's is not theasiest place for an ex-con to go straight and work is hard to come by. When Franz becomes fascinated by Reinhold (Gottfried John), a psychotic small-time crook, he is soon drawn back into a world he cannot escape.

Clear your diary-Berlin Alexanderplatz is an addictive experience. Once you are in it, you don't want to stop going,This is 15 + hours long,It's spread over thirteen 1 hour episodes and a stunning 2 hour epilogue,this is the sprawling adaptation of the 1929 novel by Alfred Döblin. It is an excellent watch and By the end of the first episode you will immediately want to find out more,wont disappoint
