Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
Zwischen Nact Und Morgen is the third movie of that name to be filmed in German; the first two were filmed in 1931 and 1944, respectively. This third film's story has little if anything to do with those earlier films, however. Based on the writings of Erich Weinert, it tells of the author's life. As a dedicated communist, Weinert fled Germany in the early '30s and fought on the Republican side in the Spanish Civil War. Circumstances eventually forced him to settle in Moscow. As a writer living in exile, without an audience, he earned a living dubbing Soviet films into German.
