It’s 1983. The Cold War is hot. Russian SS20 Missiles in East Germany are already pointed West. American Pershing II Missiles will soon be placed in West Germany, pointing East. The threat of nuclear conflict looms. Our hero, Martin Rauch (Jonas Nay), is 23. Born and raised in East Germany, he is sent undercover, as Moritz Stamm, to West Germany, to work for a top General in the Bundeswehr.
Officially, his job is to gather intelligence on the placement of the Pershing II Missiles. A secondary gig develops, infiltrating youth culture through close relationships with the General’s two children. But nothing and no one are as they seem.
Set against the real events, culture wars and political realities of Germany in the 1980s, Deutschland 83 stars a fantastic cast of German actors including Jonas Nay (We Are Young, We Are Strong), Maria Schrader (In Darkness), Sylvester Groth (Inglorious Bastards) and Ulrich Noethen (Downfull).
Deutschland 83 is a must-watch for all crime dramas fanatics and fans of foreign television and cinema, and is yours to own on Digital Download from 8th February and on DVD from 15th February.
