After spending four years in prison for killing his girlfriend, lumbering man-child Franz Biberkopf is finally released back into society. He wants to stay honest now he has left jail, but it is tough in the Alexanderplatz section of Berlin. After failing to succeed in several 'regular' jobs, he falls in with some old cohorts and an on-again, off-again association with thugs. Post-war society is crumbling, and it appears that nothing will bring it back. Originally made for television, Berlin Alexanderplatz is a prototype for the modern long-form drama, grandfather to Tony and the Sopranos.

Once the toast of Germany, Veronika Voss had allegedly been an intimate of Joseph Gobbels. Playing to an increasingly diminishing fan following, Veronika turns to drugs to cushion her against the cruelties of life. Her self-destruction is accelerated by her Dr. Katz, who plys Veronika with morphine in order to gain control of the actress's money and property. A well-meaning sportswriter tries to save Veronika from herself, sacrificing his own personal happiness - and the life of his girlfriend Cornelia Froeboess - in the process. Allegedly an amalgam of several true stories, Veronika Voss is the second of Fassbinder's "postwar trilogy" (the others are The Marriage of Maria Braun and Lola).
