East-German film reflecting on the last days of a forced-on-system
13 February 2001 | by (Austria) – See all my reviews

In a flash-back construction this film tells the story of an East-German highschool-graduate, who falls in love with his female teacher. Both disagree with the states doctrine of educating people to servile creatures, not expected to think for themselfes. The love-story of these two rebel-soulmates is set before the 40-year anniversary of the GDR, the last big rite before the final fall of the Berlin wall. This film is about basic values, such as civil courage and truth.
