Reportedly the first postwar Austrian production, Der Welte Weg (The Long Way) was filmed in the Soviet sector of occupied Vienna. The story concerns a group of POWs in the waning days of WWII. Despite the plight of these unfortunates, certain of the male and female prisoners manage to find romance. Most of the film deals with a triangle involving Rudolf Prack, Maria Anderson and Willi Danek. Having been conceived and filmed by pro-Soviets, Der Welte Weg is top-heavy with anti-German sentiments, which severely limited the film's salability in certain portions of Europe.
