NEW AGFACOLOR RESTORATION!

Banned by the German government in its day, GREAT FREEDOM NO. 7, named after the main thoroughfare in the red-light district in Hamburg, is a rich and honest look at the life of the "singing sailor", Hannes Kroger (Hans Albers) whose love of the sea conflicts with his desires for a farm girl (played by the amazing Ilse Werner) who was his deceased brother's companion. But she is in love with another man, and the heartbreak of Hannes is palpable as he weighs his options. Now considered a classic of German cinema, this bracingly honest look at the lives of the lower classes infuriated the German high command, and it was banned until the Allied forces won the war. Don't miss this gorgeous Agfacolor restoration of this super rare film on the big screen!

In German with English subtitles
