Storyline

As he is arrested after a concert, Marco is forced to join the army, where he surprisingly identifies with socialism and believes he has to defend his country against the capitalist enemy. While Jürgen is astonished, his wife Hanna and Marco's girlfriend Anja, supporting the civil rights movement, don't like his new attitude... Written by fippi2000

almost perfect and brilliantly acted....
15 March 2010 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

Whilst some of the story seems artificial .... this film shows a family coping with life in the DDR in the year leading up to "the fall of the wall" and it does it amazingly well.

The cast is uniformly excellent... the scenes between Heino Ferch and Veronica Ferres in particular are electric as Ferch realises the end is coming for the DDR.

Kostja Ullman and Karoline Herfuth are fine as the young lovers. Kostja has the more complicated character that evolves from punk to soldier and back again.

But the whole cast is excellent.

This is fine adaption of a true story.... well worth watching.

The film has been released on DVD in Germany and is now available in Australia with English subtitles.
