Bear ye one another's burden (Einer trage des anderen Last)

Streaming video - 2014

Two roommates in a private sanatorium in early-1950s East Germany are extremely different from one another. Josef is a communist policeman, while Hubertus is a Lutheran vicar. While Josef reads The Communist manifesto, Hubertus prepares his sermon. Above their beds hang Stalin and Christ. The film offers both suspense and comedy, as the two begrudgingly develop tolerance and respect for one another. Orginally East German officials had not been open to the religious questions raised by the film, ...and the script was banned in 1973; it was over 10 years later before Warneke finally received permission to make the film, based on a revised script. Jörg Pose (Josef) and Manfred Möck (Hubertus) received the Silver Bear at the 1988 Berlin Film Festival for their performances.
