"Berlin Is In Germany" take an close look on the former eastern German society 11 years after. This look is done through the eyes of the last "Ossi" who had spend these very years in prison and is now released to a country he only knows from television. But even this is a quite extreme setting, the movie makes no big deal of it. It tells every thing that's needed to tell and nothing more. It concentrates on details but constructs a subtle image of a whole society, a snapshot. Beside this, it's very well acted and made with love for it characters. Therefore it seems believable. All in all, I highly recommend this one to all, interested in the fact, that there still is more than one Germany, but also to all who just want to see a nice and human movie about the difficulties of finding ones way back into society.
