After the Wall comes the Bridge
17 October 2010 | by See all my reviews

I didn't know what the story was about, but during the course of the movie I got the feeling this was based on a true story. And yes it does, though you would have guessed the movie could have come a bit earlier, considering the real story took place after the fall of the Berlin Wall (which happened 20 years before this movie were released theatrically) and is practically a road movie.

And as it is with Road movies, you get introduced to characters and only get a glimpse of (most of) them. Of course there is a goal to achieve, though the trials and tribulation they go through don't seem too hard. And the money issue does not seem to be any at all at times. But you might not even care about details like that. And one thing is for sure, the ending has some impact to it (although I feel it could have been stronger).
