Germania, anno zero / GERMANY, YEAR ZERO
It Happened Yesterday

It's ?Year Zero? in a Germany under reconstruction following the war. The German people are becoming increasingly aware of their defeat and of the horrific genocide perpetrated by Hitler's followers. 12-year-old Edmund is forced to care for his dying father. Working on the black market, he runs into one of his former teachers, a homosexual who finds boys for an ex-Nazi general. Through his new acquaintances, Edmund begins to believe that only the strong deserve to survive and that the weak should be killed. Imbued with these thoughts, he takes the decision to kill his ailing father.
ROBERTO ROSSELLINI After the two neorealistic mainstays Roma, città aperta (Rome, Open City, 1945) and Germania anno zero (Germany Year Zero, 1947), Rossellini shot four films with his wife Ingrid Bergman before leaving in a flurry of personal crisis to work in India with the cameraman Aldo Tonti. His return saw the addition to his achievements of the excellent Il generale della Rovere (General della Rovere, 1959), following which he more or less abandoned cinema and turned to television.
