Trace of Stones (1966)
Banned for 25 Years!
|Originally banned for its perceived anti-establishment message, this DEFA masterpiece was re-released to great acclaim after the reunification of Germany. Foreman Balla is the swaggering, self-proclaimed king of a massive construction site, and his co-workers stick close to him like musketeers. But when a new Party Secretary is sent in to bring the site under control, along with a beautiful young engineer named Kati, a love triangle ensues.|
Editor's NoteA beloved construction foreman faces new challenges when a hostile Party Secretary arrives at his worksite, bringing along a technician named Kati. As the Party Secretary sticks his nose into the foreman's business, the three are soon embroiled in a love triangle that changes them all. Banned for 25 years in its former East Germany, TRACE OF STONES is considered one of the more significant films to have been produced during that period.
