Moody East German political film doesn't grab attention
1 October 2001 | by (Cambridge, England) – See all my reviews

Even in the political environment of Marx and Engels, it happened that bosses took short cuts to complete safety critical work ahead of schedule. When an experienced and honest engineer, Heinz Solter, gets caught up in this he blows the whistle and suffers accordingly as the system tries to get him.

A very sparse film in every way; monochrome, with minimal set decoration, a very basic pop music score (performed by "The Sputniks") and pretty basic acting and direction too, this film doesn't grab your attention. It got the attention of the authorities, though: they banned it shortly after it was released, because of its challenging assumption, that the state could be wrong.
