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!!
