Win a Berlin Alexanderplatz: Limited Edition Blu-ray Box Set

Maestro of cinema Rainer Werner Fassbinder’s magnum opus, the captivating 15-hour odyssey Berlin Alexanderplatz makes its Blu-ray debut as a stunning limited edition box set thanks to Second Sight. To celebrate its release, we have 2 copies up for grabs.

Starting life as a German miniseries, Berlin Alexanderplatz has been described as the longest film ever made.  Adapted and directed by Fassbinder from the Alfred Döblin novel of the same name, it originally aired on TV in 1980. Now this seminal masterwork arrives as Berlin Alexanderplatz Limited Edition Blu-ray Box Set on 23 July 2018, complete with a luxury 60-page perfect bound book and a host of standout special features including an appreciation by writer and critic Tony Rayns the acclaimed documentary Fassbinder: Love Without Demands, a visual essay by Daniel Bird.

Franz Biberkopf is an unforgettable man: good-natured, soft, tender, but also hard, violent and brutal. Released from prison following a four-year sentence for the manslaughter of his girlfriend, he plans to make a new start and a decent life for himself. But a chaotic, decadent Berlin of the 1920s is not the easiest place for an ex-con to go straight and work is hard to come by. When Franz becomes fascinated by Reinhold, a psychotic small-time crook, he is soon drawn back into a world he cannot escape.
