What it was like when the Wall came down.
19 July 2000 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

In a provincial town in East Germany, the theater is preparing for the big performance. Meanwhile in Berlin and elsewhere in the country, dramatical political changes are taking place. What did it feel like to ordinary East Germans when their life was turned upside down during the fateful autumn of 1989? This film will give you an impression of that time free from the hugs-and-champagne cliche reiterated in the media.
