1960's Ostalgie
16 October 2004 | by (Washington, DC) – See all my reviews

I first became aware of this movie from the excerpts presented in "East Side Story", a documentary about Eastern Block musicals. As an American

who's interested in East German pop culture, I found "Heißer Sommer" quite enjoyable -- the scenes set in Leipzig and Berlin showed the 1960's socialist architecture (mostly crumbling or demolished now) in new condition, and the Baltic scenes contrasted that with the traditional German architecture. Plus, there's Trabants galore throughout the picture, if you're a fan of that classic East German automobile. And the songs (particularly during the campfire scene) were actually quite good.
