Critic Reviews for Deutschland 83: Deutschland 83

The threat of mutually assured destruction has never been so much fun.

June 17, 2015 | Full Review…

The clunky '80s spy technology is riveting. The locations in and around Berlin add visual interest. Nay's cool, understated performance is a plus.

August 31, 2015 | Full Review…

Deutschland 83 is a genuine corker, with flashes of graphic style-an angular black-and-white dress, a carefully arranged drawer of cigarettes, cash, and Nescafé.

July 8, 2015 | Full Review…

It's enough to make us demand more, possibly an entire channel of German drama, if they're all this good.

June 18, 2015 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…

This drama is so good that we're able to forgive the glaring and all too convenient coincidences.

December 6, 2018 | Full Review…

Deutschland 83 is calibrated for tastes hell-bent on energetic, addictive narratives, and is sure to please contemporary bingers.

Audience Reviews for Deutschland 83: Deutschland 83



Super Reviewer

It's not everyday that you see a spy thriller coming from Germany. Deutschland 83 is a clever drama about a young man being forced to act as KGB spy for East Germany in the 1983. Lots of drama ensured. I wish it was more realistic however, but overall very engaging.
