Before God and Man (German: Vor Gott und den Menschen) is a 1955 West German drama film directed by Erich Engel and starring Viktor de Kowa, Antje Weisgerber and Hans Söhnker.[1] [2] It was shot at the Tempelhof Studios in West Berlin. The film's sets were designed by the art directors Emil Hasler and Walter Kutz.


Shortly after the Second World War, Maria marries fellow lawyer Martin who had been severely wounded in action. She believes that her first husband Georg was killed in action, and married Martin to some degree out of pity. Several years later Georg resurfaces alive in Leipzig in East Germany and tries to resume their former relationship, but Maria comes to realise that it is Martin that she truly loves.
