I'm not sure if I've seen that one. I'll look for it.
(Found it on Netflix and added it to my "Instant Queue". - Thanks!)
When I was in the Army, I spent 3 years in Berlin, (1974-1977). It was the best time I ever had in my life, I think. There is no way to "see-it-all" in only three years, but I tried, (I had to work 12 hours a day also).
What a city! I do believe that it's New York City's equal in regard to what is available and in Berlin, you would have to go to a very stupid place to get mugged. There is a section of Berlin called "Little Istanbul" and yes, you can hold a dollar above your head, drop it and get mugged before it lands. That's really the only place that is bad in the city though.
PM me about Berlin if you'd like to know more.
