comical and powerful
30 December 2002 | by (Jena, FRG) – See all my reviews

A film I almost didn't go to watch, because the theme didn't seem appealing enough. In the end I was very glad, I had gone, since while perhaps not perfect, I found it to be very realistic and close up which at least for me made it very touching. As an aside you get a good look at some aspects of the former East Germany 10 years on, as the story is situated there.
