His country no longer exists, his wife got a new one and you are just out of prison.
25 March 2003 | by (Berlin, Germany) – See all my reviews

The director could not have shown Berlin better as what it is shown in this movie. Brilliant actors together with great pictures made this movie a very special one. The story is about Martin, just released from prison where he faced a 11-year sentence because of homicide. How things can change in these 11 years, is what this movie is based on. The Berlin Wall is gone, his country does not exist anymore, he has never seen his son and his wife has a new one. Great perspective for someone like Martin. But he won't give up and with the help of some of his old friends he is about to start all over and find his luck again. But then his criminal past gets back at him. Great movie.
