Endstation Liebe is a German feature film by Georg Tressler from 1958. Horst Buchholz and Barbara Frey were given the leading roles .


The young factory worker Mecky bets that he can seduce a young girl for a weekend. He meets a girl from a good family, Christa, with whom Mecky falls in love. At first fighting against his feelings, at the end of the film Mecky realizes the true value of love and decides for Christa and voluntarily loses his bet.


The film Endstation Liebe was the second collaboration between director Georg Tressler and the then young German actor Horst Buchholz . In 1956 the two made the film Die Halbstarken , with which Buchholz became a movie star.

As was common in the 1950s, the romance film was recorded in black and white and monophonic . The recordings were made with a 35 mm film in the aspect ratio of 1:37: produced. 1 The footage is 2,325 m long. On the film production was Interwest film involved, the rights for the film distribution was awarded to Gloria-Film Distribution .

The film was shot in the Siemensstadt district of Berlin, on the Rote Insel in Schöneberg (you can see the gasometers) and at the Bahnhof Zoo.


The lexicon of international films saw the film 's concern as unsuccessful: "The effort to counter the smooth, mendacious youth films of the 50s with a realistic story in an authentic setting and with a social background remains stuck."
