A taxi pulls up alongside him—driven by Enrique, perhaps? To what future, however, re- mains unclear: Martin is moving once again, but without a clear des- tination. These parallel worlds meet but are not joined in Berlin. Although equally in- ternational, each population experiences a very different side of re- unification. For Martin and his friends, the shift to open borders ap- pears to have brought at least as much displacement as freedom. The question remains, however: Which Berlin? And which Germany? Adrift in the fluid and often treacherous world of the West, they find support and suste- nance in their supranational bond and thereby point the way toward an alternative collectivity.
Huyssen wrote critically of this tendency, be- lieving that, because the problem of national identity was unlikely to go away, the democratic left must avoid the tragic error of ceding this terri- tory to conservatives. More than a decade after these remarks, it ap- pears that German cinema still finds itself largely caught up in the po- larity that Huyssen identifies—between the nation and the postnational, between nostalgia and nowhere—and unable or unwilling to transcend that divide.http://www.newyorkdecompression.com/wp-content/age/35-for-two-original-comedy.php

Taken together, they read as different facets of the same cinematic desire—to overcome the present dilemmas of nation, either by revisiting the sites and sights of a cohesive past, or by overcoming the categories of nation altogether. Seen in this light, Good Bye, Lenin! On a formal level, it engages in the very memory politics that it intends to critique, employing visual and aural strategies that are distinctly ostalgic, and that ultimately rein- force the notion of GDR history as collectible kitsch.
Berlin Is in Germany, in contrast, presents an adamantly postnational, skeptical view of inner-German unity, showing a world in which East and West remain separate entities, and instead points toward the emergence of new, distinctly supranational affiliations. Yet despite their marked differences, both works circle around the same point: where to turn, in an age in which the question of nation never seemed more press- ing and yet obsolete?
Washington University in St. NOTES 1. Berdahl makes the important observation that Ostalgie represents a longing not just for old patterns of consumption but also a bygone era of GDR production Clarke argues that the film foregrounds the loss and recuperation of post- Wall masculine agency. How is it possible to make a film about Europe, its various mentalities, its peo- ple? What cities should one include? What symbols? I was always con- cerned about the European moment, the meeting of the various European mentalities. One Day in Europe: the film is about the here and now, but it tells us about a certain utopia at the same time.

With a nonchalance, from which can only be assumed that there never was such a figure as Goebbels or such an institution as the Reichskulturkammer, or indeed, that both have again become definitive authorities, the familiar adjective pairs "nihilistic" and "positive", "corrupting" and "healthy" are thrown into the debate.
Schneider as the young empress Sissi embodied an archetypal female ideal of the s in Germany and Austria. Sissi's dilemma as a foreign import into the royal Austrian house was that, unlike her mother-in-law who identified with the public function of ruling and insisted that her daughter-in-law do the same by giving her children to a royal governess, Sissi wished to raise her children herself in classic middle class fashion, vehemently rejecting any claims or pretensions to power.

The popularity of this image would haunt Schneider, pushing her to move to Paris where she took on other roles and was recognized by the critical establishment as a fine character actress. While many could not see beyond Perkins' previous roles, Schneider had clearly shifted away from her earlier screen image: Schneider's "bravado performance as the sexually promiscuous nurse has nothing more in common with the little Sissi soul she once was. The svelt, high-heeled witch with the cat's eyes, quick steps, pressing gestures and whispers understands the elementary art of seduction.
An excellent performance. This almost seemed like a contest between European nation-states, with West Germany, France and Italy competing for the prize of who could play a Kafkaesque female most effectively. More detailed discussions of Schneider's Leni revealed a key assumption some critics held about the role and place of women in a Kafkaesque universe: that they were not true subjects:.
Romy Schneider as Leni She represents completely the image of the women in The Trial who do not possess sufficient substance, who are too animalistic, ever to become the "accused " themselves. Ironically, several critics praised Schneider's Leni as her first quality characterization, even as they defined her, tongue in cheek, as without character, a being "somewhere between a frog and a human," referring to Leni's physical defect: small webs between several of her fingers.
Those critics who conceded that there were sexual dimensions to be found in Kafka and who liked Schneider's performance sarcastically attributed her shift of image to the "arts" the "little Vienna beast" had learned in Paris. What did this suggest about the changing functions of the Kafkaesque in postwar West Germany? One very interesting aspect is tied to gender. Despite Josef K. Women in this world of passive anonymity occupy a space a notch below even this status, as their sexuality degrades them to animal status.
German critics did not think to link the sexual aggressiveness of the female characters in The Trial to the more active dimensions of Josef K. Nor did they relate a Josef K. Instead, the proper world of Kafka was a world where men were unjustly accused but did not resist and women were not accused at all. Persecution no longer emerges, as in Kafka, out of a metaphysical consciousness of guilt; rather, it is secret yet real powers, that take a Josef K.

The Josef K of … this must be decisive. This material was not available to the public when Welles made his film although Felice Bauer had sold the letters to Kafka's publisher in New York in the late s. Thus, Welles' and Perkins' attempts to give to K. Bloch revealed this correspondence to Bauer, who subsequently called a meeting between herself, her friend and Kafka at a hotel in Berlin to confront Kafka with what both she and Bloch perceived as his duplicity.
The engagement to Bauer, which consisted almost exclusively of letters rather than face to face encounters, was broken off twice and a marriage never took place. Because he perceived his engagement as in essence an extension of his literary calling, whereby any form of literary expression could or would not be excluded, Kafka had an acute awareness of a conflict between his writing and the bourgeois norms attached to marriage and founding a family.
He began work on The Trial in August of , shortly after the meeting in the Berliner hotel. While receptive to the idea that fascism may have been anticipated by a Jewish writer, German critics preferred an anonymous, passive Josef K. Orson Welles cryptically suggested such an aspect in a statement quoted in the publicity material:. My film is not only about the conspiracy of the court against the innocent; it is much more a study of the corruptability of the judicial process.
My hero Josef K is not innocent; he is capable of being just like the others. Yet none of the others comes to his aid. And neither does he do anything for those around him. Max Brod ed. Der Prozess S. This text is under a Creative Commons license : Attribution-Noncommercial 2.
