I’m not going to recommend this to anybody but I finished the first series of Küdamm 56. I was interested to see how they handled the years after the war.
It’s about a family who own a dance academy in Küdamm, the premier shopping street of West Berlin. Father disappeared on the Russian front and hasn’t returned to the academy. Rock and roll is coming and the mother does not like it, but the youngest daughter, Monika, does.
Three girls…one marries a guy who’s connected but gay, second one, Eva, is obsessed by the neurosurgeon she works for. He has a very murky war past and practises ECT.
The wall isn’t up yet, and the interaction between this family and people in the Soviet eastern sector is interesting.
Another series, Küdamm 59, is set 3 years later,2 years from the wall being built. Interesting to see the dramatisation of a time of massive cultural change.
I’m trying to refrain from anything significant in the storyline. But, while it’s a little slow, so much potential.
