(USA/Germany, 2007, 81 minutes)

Lou Reed and his band perform in its entirety his 1973 album Berlin in December 2006 at the St. Ann's Warehouse in New York City. Impressionistic concert movie that is essentially a faithful record of a particularly impressive series of performances, but no more and no less than that; of little or no interest for anyone who is not appreciative either of the performer or of the director.
