What’s your favorite film about the post-World War 2 period?

Ashes and Diamonds

This week’s question: films about the post-World War 2 period. The story should offer some kind of look at the world left in the wake of the War.

Here is what our host Richard Peña thinks, “Andrzej Wajda’s great masterpiece Ashes And Diamonds just makes the cut—it’s set on the last day of the war. And of course, there’s The Third Man. For a more comic view, don’t miss Billy Wilder’s A Foreign Affair, with Marlene Dietrich.”
