Acht Akte in einem nicht uninteressanten Mietshause


In "Menschen Untereinander" ("The Folk Upstairs"), director Gerhard Lamprecht sketches a cross-section of Germany's new post-war society, with its winners, social climbers, and losers, represented by the social microcosm of an apartment building. The gossip-mad Frau Mierig (Lydia Potechina) from the rear building gives the newly-arrived Frau Kaminski (Käthe Haack), the janitor's wife, a lively initiation into the tenants and their peculiarities.
