deutsche Filme

Three films with great craft to recommend. These are non-Rainer Fassbinder, as every feature by the German master is class.

Das schreckliche Mädchen (1990)

Pacy West German production. A teenage girl uncovers her town's Nazi past.

Helsinki Opera House

Controversially it was once rented out privately, to apparently battle its high costs.

Peterhof vs Versailles

In Russian tradition you do things three times for good luck, eg three shots.

Least charismatic frontman

Thought: Mike Love is the only frontman and lead singer in history to be the least charismatic and worst singer in his band (Beach Boys).

Ich habe diesen auf der straße gefunden, und es wird wahrscheinlich da zuruck.

Märchenbrunnen

A wonderful display architecture and imagination easily missed in the heart of Berlin.

The Märchenbrunnen is literally the fountain of fairy tales. There are statues depicting Little Red Riding Hood, Puss In Boots, Cinderella, Snow White, Hansel and Gretel and many more. I begin to wonder of the origins of these tales and their universality.

The entire Volkspark Friedrichshain was bombed out and has had many iterations, but the Märchenbrunnen has survived. 

If you climb to the parks' peak you are in fact climbing the rumble of a Flak Tower, the massive WWII anti-aircraft structure that could house 30,000 civilians during air raids.

Kühlschrank

Fridge on street is very common. Sorry for the gross rubbish.

Boxi

Found it.
