If you liked "The Lives of Others", this is a must...
24 December 2012 | by (Switzerland) – See all my reviews

Life in the former GDR is a mysterious fascination for many of us, and this film brilliantly conveys the struggle of the human spirit imprisoned in this oppressive socialist regime, which specialized in manipulation and blackmail to keep its citizens in check. And here we see two young men, with dreams of life at sea. Is realizing one's lifelong dream worth crushing the dreams of another? It is this dilemma that paves the way for a story that truly explores the inner strengths and weaknesses within us all. It will be hard not be moved by this film, which lives up to the quality of previous films focusing on life behind the Berlin Wall. Great performances by all main characters.
