The search by Fred Zinnemann( Visual )

5 editions published between 1948 and 2010 in English and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In post-World War II Germany, a small boy who survivied Auschwitz wanders alone -- feral, mute and terrified. He finds a makeshift home with a big-hearted GI, while the mother he does not remember searches desperately for him. Starring a then-unknown Montgomery Clift in his movie debut, directed in a near-documentary style by Fred Zinnemann and filmed in the ragged, rubble-strewn skeleton of Nuremberg, The Search vividly captures the horrifying human cost of war. This milestone of filmmaking won two 1948 Academy Awards: Best Motion Picture Story and a special award to Ivan Jandl for his haunting performance as the lost child."--Container

Wirklichkeitsdarstellung, ein illusionsloses Drehbuch von starker menschlicher Wärme und das erlebnisechte Spiel der Kinder machen den (1947 in zerbombten süddeutschen Städten gedrehten) Film zu einem künstlerisch und menschlich bemerkenswerten Dokument."
