Excellent
2 January 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a true story as I was living in Berlin. My dad Charles Fitz was called out to negotiate the release of the refugee. I believe the character representing his part in this event was Major Finnegan. I remember how he wanted to do more to for the refugee. Great Movie/realistic and shows the fear/hopelessness of the Cold war at the time. I enjoyed the glimpse of history. I could recite a number of stories from our time in Germany and Russia . Sean Flynn did a good job. Story was filmed dark to illustrate the environment. Glad we have moved on. I have many stories about the night the Berlin wall was built.
