And Your Love Too
And Your Love Too is a 1962 East-German movie directed by Frank Vogel. Berlin around August 13, 1961. The girl Eva stands between the brothers Ulli and Klaus, two working-class boys whose world views are opposite. Klaus is for the fast money he earns as a cab driver in the West and for a carefree life. Ulli is more serious, somewhat shy, and has a firm political viewpoint. On August 13, Klaus' path to the West is suddenly blocked, and Ulli stands at the border with a gun in his hand. With Eva, the self-confident Klaus makes the running, but when the girl becomes pregnant, he wants to shirk responsibility.
It was the first Mauerfilm (wall film) in the GDR to focus on the construction of the Berlin Wall.
The following weapons were used in the film And Your Love Too:
East-German Kampfgruppen der Arbeiterklasse (Combat Groups of the Working Class; a paramilitary organization in the GDR) to which also belongs Ullrich Sittich (Armin Mueller-Stahl) are equipped with PPSh-41s.
As Ullrich Sittich visits his Cuban comrades-in-arms in Havana, he encounters Alfredo (Alfonso Arau) carrying an Sa 25.
Mosin Nagant M44
The Mosin Nagant M44 Carbine is also used by some Combat Groups members.
Grenztruppen Border guards are armed with MPi-KmS assault rifles.
At the end of the movie, a West-Berlin police officer prevents Klaus and Ullrich to cross the Mauer (Wall) with a Luger P08; a twisting of the facts.
An East-German pistol holster for a Makarov PM is briefly seen.
Archival footage of the infamous encounter of Soviet and U.S. tanks that faced each other at point-blank range at Checkpoint Charlie on October 27th, 1961 are shown. Of course, as a member of the eastern bloc, the filmmakers included only U.S. Army tanks, not the Soviet T-55 counterparts. This is supposed to represent western aggression.
