Babylon Berlin

Multi-awarded international hit series set in Berlin as a hotbed of crime and politics, sex and drugs, emancipation and extremism. Directed by Tom Tykwer, Achim von Borries and Henk Handloegten, the series set a new standard for story telling made in Europe.

Season 1&2:
Berlin in the Roaring Twenties: It is a metropolis for those with talent and ambition, for those in a hustle. It is BABYLON BERLIN. But beneath the glittering surface, the impoverished masses strive for a better life. It is a time of organized crime and political extremism. The old militaristic elites have not yet abdicated, while an even more dreadful monster starts flexing its muscles.
Gereon, a Cologne police officer, is new to the vice squad at the Red Fort, Berlin's monumental police headquarters. Though calm and sincere at first sight, he carries a haunting burden.
The squad is headed by Bruno Wolter, a loyal and caring colleague, whose hidden agenda becomes a serious threat.
Caught between these two men is Charlotte, a bright young woman struggling to improve her family's miserable living conditions and is leading a double life.
When a freight train from the young Soviet Union arrives, it draws attention from many corners: to some, its treasure is the key to political power, to others it secures a life in freedom and wealth, but first and foremost it is a deadly trap to everyone trying to approach it.

Season 3:
The tumultuous weeks before Black Friday's stock market crash: Inspector Gereon Rath and Charlotte Ritter are assigned to the violent on-set death of actress Betty Winter. While Gereon struggles to deal with his drug problem and to adapt to his new family life, Charlotte fights for recognition in the male-dominated police department.
For some, however, these trying times provide opportunities. As sound film conquers the big screen leaving many by the wayside, the shady Armenian takes his chances as a film producer. But he will soon learn that the film industry is just as rotten as the underworld. Others fight for political power: The Black Reichswehr regathers its forces for its next attempt to bring down democracy and the funeral of a murdered notorious Nazi provides the perfect occasion to provoke more clashes with the Communists.
But at night all seems forgotten and the city still dances on the edge of the volcano as if there's no tomorrow…
