Good Capture of world attitude
22 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

While some of the details may not be exactly historical (Noting the goofs page), That really was not important enough to hurt this movie.

Tony Danza is a standout blending fine expressions and real life reactions to events as they unfold.

To keep this movie in perspective, I felt it captured the attitude and drama of what unfolded in those early dark days of 1961. The struggle of a people, of a nation wanting to remain free. The courage of a (already free) people risking their lives to help their East German family, friends and loved ones.

This Movie contained a Political impact as well as a personal one.

It should be used as a teaching tool.

Finally, the ending showed that even many years later, the love of people remained strong as did the Wall itself.
