Babylon Berlin is a German neo-noir television series. It is created, written and directed by Tom Tykwer, Achim von Borries and Hendrik Handloegten, based on novels by German author Volker Kutscher. The series takes place in Berlin during the Weimar Republic, starting in 1929. It follows Gereon Rath, a police inspector on assignment from Cologne who is on a secret mission to dismantle an extortion ring, and Charlotte Ritter, police clerk by day, flapper by night, who is aspiring to become a police inspector.

The series premiered on 13 October 2017 on Sky 1, a German-language entertainment channel broadcast by Sky Deutschland. The first broadcast consisted of a continuous run of sixteen episodes, with the first eight officially known as Season 1, and the second eight known as Season 2. Netflix released the first two seasons in the US, Canada, and Australia. The third season is scheduled to premiere on 24 January 2020 on Sky 1.[1]

Production[edit]

Development[edit]

The series was co-directed by Tom Tykwer, Hendrik Handloegten, and Achim von Borries, who also wrote the scripts. The first two series of the show were filmed over eight months beginning in May 2016.

German public broadcaster ARD and pay TV channel Sky co-produced the series, a first time collaboration in German television.[citation needed] As part of the arrangement, Sky broadcast the series first, and ARD started broadcasts by free-to-air television on 30 September 2018. Netflix purchased rights for the United States and Canada, where the series became available in 2018 with English dubbing and subtitles.

The series is described as the most expensive television drama series in Germany, with a budget of €40 million that increased to €55 million due to reshoots.[2]

Future Seasons[edit]

After a year-long production hiatus, the show resumed production in late 2018 with an extended six-month shoot for the third season of Babylon Berlin; filming was completed in May 2019.[3][4][5] At the 32nd European Film Awards in December 2019, showrunners Achim von Borries, Henk Handloegten and Tom Tykwer stated that the third season was in post-production and that a fourth season is planned.[6]

The third season was developed loosely around the second novel in Volker Kutscher’s trilogy The Silent Death. The showrunners chose to diverge from the source material to better address the social and political unrest during the time period as they felt that Weimar Republic is often overlooked by both media and historical sources.[7] The third season is set in Fall 1929 around the Black Tuesday stock market crash and navigates the rise of the subversive Black Reichswehr and Communists political groups as well as the advent of talkies.

Era[edit]

In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, one of the show's co-creators, Tom Tykwer, spoke about the era:

“At the time people did not realize how absolutely unstable this new construction of society which the Weimar Republic represented was. It interested us because the fragility of democracy has been put to the test quite profoundly in recent years... By 1929, new opportunities were arising. Women had more possibilities to take part in society, especially in the labor market as Berlin became crowded with new thinking, new art, theater, music and journalistic writing.” Nonetheless, Tykwer insisted that he and his co-directors were determined not to idealize the Weimar Republic. “People tend to forget that it was also a very rough era in German history. There was a lot of poverty, and people who had survived the war were suffering from a great deal of trauma.”[8]

In the first season, Communists, Soviets and especially Trotskyists play a prominent role (the Soviet ambassador to Germany from 1923 to 1930 was former Trotsky's ally Nikolay Krestinsky). The show is depicting of what became known as Blutmai, the violence between the Communist demonstrators and members of the Berlin Police in early May 1929,[9] and extra-legal paramilitary formations promoted by the German army, known as the Black Reichswehr.[10] Nazi Party leader Adolf Hitler, on the other hand, is only mentioned in passing during the first two seasons of Babylon Berlin.[11]

Locations[edit]

The Babelsberg Studio created an addition to its Metropolitan Backlot for the filming of the series and for future productions,[12] in form of a large permanent standing set, lauded by the company as one of the largest in Europe.[13] The set includes representations of various neighborhoods of Berlin, including the prevailing economic classes, and also includes the large exterior of the night club Moka Efti.[14] In addition, the series was filmed throughout Berlin and at other locations in Germany. Numerous scenes were filmed on Alexanderplatz in front of the historic Alexanderhaus [de]. The police headquarters, once located directly behind it, and other surrounding buildings, were destroyed in WWII, but were recreated with computer simulations. The Rotes Rathaus (Berlin City Hall) was used for most closeup scenes involving the exterior of the police headquarters, because their red brick appearance and architectural style are very similar. Interiors of the police headquarters lobby were filmed at the Rathaus Schöneberg, including scenes with its paternoster elevator, while the elegant Ratskeller restaurant in the same building was used as the nearby cafe Aschinger[15] in multiple scenes. Interior scenes in the Moka Efti were filmed at the Delphi Cinema[16] in Berlin-Weissensee. A lengthy suspense sequence set during a performance of The Threepenny Opera, was filmed at the historic Theater am Schiffbauerdamm, where the play actually ran at the time. Other scenes were filmed on Museum Island and in the Hermannplatz U-Bahn station in Berlin, and the Church of the Redeemer on the Havel river in Potsdam. The scenes set on the estate of the Nyssen family were filmed at Schloss Drachenburg, a castle in the Rhineland. Scenes involving a steam train were filmed at the Bavarian Railway Museum near Nördlingen.

Music[edit]

In addition to period music, "Dance Away", from the 1979 album Manifesto by Roxy Music, plays occasionally in the background (adapted to the style of the period) and also included is an adaptation of "These Foolish Things" and, in the Season Two finale, a Russian version of "Gloomy Sunday". Singer Bryan Ferry of Roxy Music appears toward the end of the first series as a cabaret singer. In the first double episode of the first series, the Lithuanian actress Severija Janušauskaitė as Swetlana Sorokina, crossdressing as the male singer Nikoros, performs the main theme of the series, "Zu Asche, Zu Staub" in the Moka Efti cabaret. This song was later released under the pseudonym "Severija".

Broadcast[edit]

Babylon Berlin premiered in Germany on 13 October 2017 (Sky 1) and in the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland on Sunday, 5 November 2017 (Sky Atlantic).[17] The series debuted in Australia, Canada, and the United States on 30 January 2018 (Netflix).[18] Broadcasting on the German TV channel Das Erste started Sunday 30 September 2018.[19] The Swedish broadcast began on 19 June 2019 on SVT.[20]

After early indications of a late 2019 premiere,[21] it was finally announced that the third season would premiere in Germany on Sky 1 on 24 January 2020.[22] The international distribution rights of third season were sold to more than one hundred countries and many different networks including Netflix, HBO Europe, and Viasat in Spring 2019.[21][23] As of early 2020, premiere dates have not yet been announced for any country outside of Germany though it has been indicated that the season will show on German public television station ARD in Fall 2020.[23]

Episodes[edit]

The first and second seasons, of eight episodes each, were written as one complete story (covering the first novel of the Kutscher book series) and filmed as one continuous production.[24] They premiered as one unbroken block, numbered 1-16,[25] and have been broadcast throughout the world as one block. In addition, all 16 episodes of both seasons were made available simultaneously on Netflix. [26]

The second block of 12 episodes are therefore officially known as Season 3.[27]

Season 1 (2017)[edit]

All episodes were written and directed by Henk Handloegten, Achim von Borries, and Tom Tykwer.

1"Episode 1"13 October 2017 (2017-10-13)
In April 1929, a train bound for Berlin has to make a stop near Novorzhev due to a burning tree lying on the rails. The engine driver and a train worker get ambushed by several armed, Russian-speaking men. The men connect an additional car to the train, two Russians replace the Germans who get killed via headshots. Meanwhile, Gereon Rath, a morphine addict and World War I veteran who works as an inspector in Cologne gets transferred to Berlin. He and his new partner Bruno Wolter visit a photographic studio which is actually a pornographic film studio. While they arrest Johann König, the owner, another man tries to flee and shoots at Gereon, but gets subdued by Bruno. Bruno lets him go since the man is Franz Krajewski, one of his informants. He fought in World War I and got fired from his job as a policeman because he overreacted in a shoot-out due to his PTSD. Franz goes to a therapist and tells him that the police arrested König and that they are looking for "the film". The therapist later meets with a mysterious man, only referred to as "The Armenian". The Armenian says he will take care of the film. At the police station, Gereon bumps into Charlotte Ritter after getting out of a Paternoster. She works as an archivist at the homicide division in order to provide for her family who live under pitiable conditions. She and Gereon part ways after gathering up their respective files they had dropped. Two Trotskyists named Kardakow and Swetlana get a telegram at a printery telling them the train will arrive soon.
2"Episode 2"13 October 2017 (2017-10-13)
Gereon interrogates Johann König, who had been tortured by a mysterious man before the interrogation. He gets hold of the inspector's gun and wants to shoot Gereon, but after Gereon convinces him that his situation is hopeless, Johann commits suicide instead. This triggers Gereons PTSD, so he rushes to a nearby bathroom to take some morphine, but is unable to do so because of his heavy trembling. Charlotte, who is in the neighboring stall, finds him and helps him take his drugs. After this incident, Gereon phones with his father who is disappointed that the film has not been found yet and urges his son to destroy it should it reappear. Gereon and Bruno get called into the office of August Benda, head of the police, to explain why König was injured after Bruno's interrogation, but neither of them tell the truth. Benda has a private conversation with Gereon and asks him why he got transferred. Gereon admits that his friend, the mayor of Cologne, was blackmailed with a film that is said to be in Berlin. He asked Gereon to find it before the upcoming elections. Gereon finds Krajewski who can't tell him anything about the film. At night, Charlotte visits the Moka Efti, a popular variety theater. She listens to a singer called Nikoros, who is actually Swetlana in disguise. Charlotte follows one of the patrons to the club's basement which houses a brothel where she works as a prostitute. Swetlana's fellow Trotskyists at the printery get killed by the same men who ambushed the train, but they miss Kardakow who was hiding in the latrine.
3"Episode 3"20 October 2017 (2017-10-20)
The Russian train arrives in Berlin. Swetlana appears at the railway and tells the driver that the last car will be redirected to Paris instead of Istanbul as originally planned. When the driver gets suspicious, Swetlana threatens him with a gun, but gets stopped by German rail workers and arrested. The driver goes to Kardakow's pension, which happens to now be Gereon’s. The next day, Benda says during a speech that communist associations have planned to demonstrate on 1 May even though those kind of rallies have been banned in Berlin. When Gereon refuses to tell Bruno anything about his conversation with Benda, Bruno gets angry and arranges that the two of them will oversee the demonstrations together. Gereon returns to his hotel where he finds the landlady, Elisabeth Behnke, gagged. He and the Russian engine driver get into a fistfight and Gereon is able to throw him over a balcony. When the driver then gets kidnapped on the street, Gereon tries to intervene, but fails to save him. The driver gets taken to a warehouse where he is questioned by Trochin, the Soviet ambassador. The driver admits that the train is loaded with a great amount of gold bars that belong to Sorokin.
4"Episode 4"20 October 2017 (2017-10-20)
Gereon and Bruno examine apartments of alleged communists during demonstrations, but don't find any incriminating evidence. As they leave, a large convoy of policemen begins randomly firing at the crowds which horrifies Gereon. He and Bruno flee into a nearby house where two civilian women standing on a balcony are hit by bullets and seriously injured. Gereon is able to find a female doctor who treats poor people and is a member of the KPD. Later, Gereon and Charlotte, who now writes his reports, go to the morgue to examine the dead body of the Russian engine driver. Charlotte points out that the victim's bruises are uneven and he therefore probably didn't die from natural circumstances. Gereon recognized him as the man who had broken into his apartment.

Critical reception[edit]

Following launch of the first season, the series received almost universal critical acclaim with an average IMDb rating of 8.5 stars[28] and a Rotten Tomatoes critics approval consensus of 100%, summarising that "Babylon Berlin's humor and humanity pair nicely with its hypnotic visuals, resulting in a show that dazzles within its oversaturated genre".[29] As of April 2019, Babylon Berlin was the highest rated non-English language show on Sky TV.[7]

Carolin Ströbele of Die Zeit praised the show, saying "the plot is highly dynamic and unites sex, crime and history in a pleasantly unobtrusive manner."[30] Christian Buss, cultural critic from Der Spiegel, praised the series for staying true to the tradition of "typically German angst cinema", in the vein of 1920s silent movies such as Fritz Lang's Metropolis or Robert Wiene's The Cabinet of Dr Caligari. "It could be that Babylon Berlin is the first big German TV production since Das Boot which enjoys really relevant success abroad. Let's not be shy to say it: we [Germans] are big again – as the world champions of angst."[17]

German historian Thomas Weber commented in an interview with The Wall Street Journal on 28 January 2018, "From a historical perspective, the series is very acute in showing how Weimar Democracy was under attack both from the Communist Left, as well as by traditional Conservatives, in a kind of unholy alliance."[8] In the same interview, Babylon Berlin co-writer Henk Handloegten commented, "One of the main reasons to make Babylon Berlin was to show how all these Nazis did not just fall from the sky. They were human beings who reacted to German society’s changes and made their decisions accordingly."[8]

Accolades[edit]

The series itself received several awards in 2018. These included a Bambi in the category Beste Serie des Jahres (Best series of the year),[31] four awards at the Deutscher Fernsehpreis (Best dramatical series, best cinematography (for Frank Griebe, Bernd Fischer and Philip Haberlandt), best musical score (for Johnny Klimek and Tom Tykwer) and best production design (for Pierre-Yves Gayraud and Uli Hanisch),[32] a special Bavarian TV Award[33] and a Romy for TV event of the year.[34] In the same year, everyone majorly involved with the production of the series won a Grimme-Preis, including Volker Bruch, Liv Lisa Fries, Peter Kurth, the three directors and several members of the technical team.[35] Bruch also won a Goldene Kamera in the category Best German actor for his portrayal of Gereon Rath.[36]

The series' opening title sequence, created by German designer Saskia Marka and featuring a theme composed by Johnny Klimek and Tom Tykwer, was named the best title sequence of 2018 by industry website Art of the Title.[37]

In December 2019, the European Film Academy awarded the series with the inaugural Achievement in Fiction Series Award at the European Film Awards.[6]
