On the waterfront (Die Faust im Nacken)
Eight Oscars, four Golden Globes: Elia Kazan’s “Die Faust im Nacken” is one of the classics of American cinema. The “Spiegel” wrote in the premiere year: “For the first time, a film director has a realistic and therefore brutal image of the practices of the dockers union. The film avoids the usual simplifications and more subtly convinces that faith and decency can sometimes overcome poverty and ignorance. “Leonard Bernstein reworked the score for a suite on the waterfront that is frequently used today (” On the Waterfront “).
