I don't understand why some of the reviewers go on about this movie not being funny - this clearly goes to show that they don't get it as it is NOT meant to be funny!! People who don't understand German will not understand this movie as the subtitles do not do it justice at all - non German native speakers should therefore refrain from writing reviews! This is a very good movie about the human condition; it shows how drab and difficult life is, esp. when you live in East Berlin and don't look like Claudia Schiffer (which is most of us!) Of course, if you're into Hollywood movies, you will be disappointed. In that case, I recommend you don't watch this movie.
