BMW: The Small Escape

This is a commercial ad of BMW. This commercial was released in October 2019 in Germany. Under the title of “BMW: The Small Escape”.

30 years after the fall of the Berlin wall, BMW recounts the story of the desire for freedom, ingenuity and engineering skill – the movie “The Small Escape”

1964. Berlin is a divided city. Flight from the German Democratic Republic is punished with an order to fire. Still, many people desperately try to cross the border. They forge identity papers, dig tunnels, climb into hot-air balloons and hide in cars going to the West – towards freedom.

But as large vehicles are getting controlled more frequently and thoroughly, a West Berliner has a seemingly impossible but ingenious idea: the smallest and most inconspicuous car available at the time, the BMW Isetta, should help him smuggle a man across the border into the West.
