Funeral in Berlin

Overview

While the many fans of Michael Caine's 1960s Harry Palmer movies are still gorging themselves on all the extras that The Ipcress File DVD came with, they'll have to content themselves with the good transfer Funeral in Berlin has received on this Paramount DVD. The spy movie itself is very good and Paramount has released it in a pristine anamorphic widescreen transfer and an equally clean, well-balanced Dolby Digital 2.0 audio transfer. Since Caine's Harry Palmer is the grittier, working class cousin to the glitzy...

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Bruce Eder
Guy Hamilton's Funeral in Berlin (1966) was a groundbreaking thriller in its time. From World War II until the mid-'60s, the nature of politics and paranoia in the West had rendered just about every depiction of the Cold War into a relentlessly grim exercise in entertainment. The James Bond movies got past this by totally ignoring the Cold War in most of its scripts (with the notable exception of From Russia With Love), preferring to deal with villains other than the Soviets. The mere fact that Paramount had made Funeral in Berlin indicated a new feeling in the land. In contrast to the Bond movies, the story here was steeped in the minutiae of the Cold War, and it wasted no time in having fun at the expense of the official seriousness with which it was pursued and prosecuted. Hamilton, photographer Otto Heller, and editor John Bloom all went to town on this production, with quick editing, unusual camera angles, and a subtly wry, sardonic tone throughout the script, making this movie a lot more complex and demanding (and ultimately rewarding) than a film such as Goldfinger. This movie proved to be one of the more underrated thrillers of its period, and though most viewers shied away from its use of such plot devices as unrepentant Nazis and money stolen from Holocaust victims, those same attributes make it a movie not only worth discovering but also seeing again. The extraordinary cinematography with its images of Berlin and London during the '60s also makes this film worth watching (and owning) on that basis alone.
