So as I am strolling about Gorlitz, I happen upon the beautiful Postplatz, named so because of the Post Office that lined one side of the square. What first caught my eye were  the beautiful spring flowers that lined the whole perimeter of the square.  Second was the huge fountain in the middle because – you guessed it- the lady is holding a sea shell above her head.

The Post Office

Then I noticed what appeared to be a movie being filmed.  I sat around for an hour watching the slow process before I moved on.   Later when I googled ” Hollywood Stars filming in Gorlitz May 2015″ I was amazed to find out the movie is called “Alone in Berlin” and 2 of the top stars are Emma Thompson and Brendan Gleeson!

Gorlitz has also been a location in the filming of  The Reader, The Book Thief, Around the World in 80 Days, The Grand Budapest Hotel and others.

The Budapest Hotel’s inside was set up in this now closed  building:

but this  following  postcard is sold all over town of what the inside looks like which can be seen in the movie:

So back to “Alone in Berlin” – here are the shots I took.  I don’t  recognize any of these ladies as Emma Thompson but could this be Brendan Gleeson?

Lastly this street car was also part of the filming.  Everyone inside is dressed in the era  of the movie too.   If you double click on the  photo, it will enlarge the photo and you  can see them a little better.
