Berlin-Alexanderplatz or The Story of Franz Biberkopf (German: Die Geschichte Franz Biberkopfs) is a 1931 German drama film directed by Phil Jutzi and starring Heinrich George, Maria Bard and Margarete Schlegel. It was adapted from the 1929 novel of the same title by Alfred Döblin, who also co-wrote the screenplay.
George portrays a blue collar Berliner and small-time criminal recently released from prison who finds himself being drawn into the Berlin underworld of the 1920s after his prostitute lover is murdered.
"Yet, despite social upheaval, .......... the good among the working class still prove able to live an honest and decent life."
