Be free to look away
23 January 2001 | by (Weimar, Germany (East)) – See all my reviews

This has to be one of the worst films I ever watched. Actually, it was so painful, I could not bear to watch it all the way to the end. Now I know where Americans get the grey image of "communism" from. A completely unrealistic portrait of what life was like in East Germany!!!
