Rainer Werner Fassbinder's miniseries Berlin Alexanderplatz is currently undergoing a $500,000 restoration. David at GreenCine linked to a German article on the whole shebang, and I diligently went ahead and Babel Fish-ed it (thanks, Nick) for your enjoyment. But first, I would be remiss if I didn't excerpt the greatest gaffe of the automatic (mis)translation: "To be sure the interest in "RWF" seems to increase under young person again especially since its films told more of the situation, in which the characteristic parents grew up, than many other thing wetness out of that time."

Wetness out of that time. It almost sounds like an alternate title for 2046, no?
