When people are unwilling to rebel against a flawed social system either because they are afraid of political repression or because they are afraid to lose their material comfort – they are prone to rebel inside the area of private relationships (to challenge society’s norms and values only in private life). “Berlin affair” shows such a domesticated, “privatized” rebellion (that takes place in Nazi Germany in 1938) by a married couple that looks and sounds like any American successful couple today – with curious results we all can learn from.
