In this film's most indelible combination of sound and image, the revenge-bent Lee Marvin (character name: Walker) is seen striding purposefully down a white hallway, each smack of his footsteps resonating like the sound of marching armies, or of a rifle being cocked.
The story unfolds in monochrome. It's not black and white (although it certainly plays that way on TV). There's a blue tint to all of the scenes, which may be appropriate considering the film's German title: Der Himmel Uber Berlin. In English, that means The Sky or The Heavens Over Berlin, take your pick.
Stanley Kubrick makes a movie about ... monogamy. How good can that be?
