Goofs

In the scene where Mrs. Ratcliffe drives the Wartburg through the border fence, you can see in the background a black, red and yellow striped border post. In the film the post is on the East side but in reality these posts were only on the West side, facing West (they had a metal DDR plaque attached) indicating to anyone approaching the East that 'this is where the DDR Republic starts'.

Significantly better than other reviewers have said
19 September 2009 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

Yes, okay, it's not laugh a minute, but that is the point.... It is based on real life - what would happen if a person genuinely believed the communist ideal and moved their family to east Germany in the sixties?

Reminiscent of Hideous Kinky, this is a genuine look back from the point of view of a daughter in an unusual and poignant situation. The movie handles the story with charm and while moments are a little cheesy, it is well worth viewing, particularly for fans of Catherine Tate, who does a great job here.

I guess it depends if your glass is half full or half empty!!
