Plot is fairly predictable "Ossies" story about two brothers who meet again at the former family hotel after German Reunification.
Treatment of the West-East divide remaining after Reunification (one brother had fled to West Germany, the other stayed behind in the East) is shallow.
I liked the film though for its interesting photography - hues shift in opposition to moods - and for the character played by Iris Berben. She is the only to rise above rote predictability, but unfortunately she's not allowed to give it the deserved depth .
Ending is like entire script, hardly a surprise .
