A most fascinating movie for a number of reasons: -Montgomery Clift is great as to be expected, -many of the actors are service men and women who served in WWII, -the movie is actually shot in Berlin, with all the ruins, rubble and destruction are evident in most every shot, -humor as Montgomery Clift's character tries to explain democracy to an East German woman, -a romance between american pilot and a West German woman is both giddy and strained by circumstances, -and as you might guess by the tittle this movie is set during the Berlin Air Lift, tension, smuggling, spying....the beginning of the Cold War.

All in all a lovely little film of historical note.

If you want Hollywood blockbuster trope/crap like "13 Hours" or "American Sniper" then stay away from this little gem of a movie
