    Perhaps in the 80s or early 90s, this movie was not well received by the critics.



    I think it was about a family in either East Germany or East Berlin. I remember a young girl in the family. I thought David Warner had a role but I can't see anything obvious listed in his movies.



    I don't recall much of the plot, but some of it revolved around escaping to the west.



    Near the end, someone (can't recall who) tried to make a run for it across "no man's land' and there were explosions-a-plenty.



    It actually seemed more like fireworks and this gave an element of fantasy to the movie.



    Any ideas?

    The only other escaping to the West film I can remember is Berlin Tunnel 21

    You maybe thinking of Wall of Tyranny (1988) aka Freedom Fighter a TV movie which starred David MacCallum not David Warner. Set in Berlin although some of it was filmed in Bradford, West Yorkshire in the 'Little Germany' area of the city It was certainly very poorly received by the critics.

    Pretty sure it's Night Crossing, thanks.



    I think I saw the Tunnel one too.



    Wall of Tyranny....don't think I've seen that. Tony Danza? Don't think I could watch it either.
