The titular Roland (diesel locomotive engineer at the East German Reichsbahn) has a complicated love life (with most any woman along his line.) Even when he is assigned to the express train to (East) Berlin.
Add to the complexity: the woman handball teams of both of his line's end points, and their machinations. And the dachshund associations and tests...
As I have never lived in East Germany, I might have missed many subtleties. But still I enjoyed the show.
Comedian Rolf Herricht shows his strengths, but decently.
All in all, a quite well-done comedy from a country that disappeared in 1990. Less about trains than I'd have hoped, but still a lovely blast from the past, from a fallen-flag country since 25 years...
I enjoyed watching this film.
