A conceivable, but impossible East-West story
1 June 2002 | by TuranSee all my reviews

By a quirk of fate, a little shoe factory in West Germany is inherited by East Germany. The East German authorities bring in a new management from East Berlin, and they try to run the company the Socialist way. It has several consequences: the managers and their families are exposed to the "free West" lifestyle, a Greek worker turns out to be a Communist as well, and the sales go down. On the other hand, even Moscow-style Communists like the new management can be relatively decent people...

The story is 100% fiction, but as a "what if" story it has been well invented and is worth watching even now. Some of the actors, like Hans-Christian Blech, actually have fled from East Germany and knew exactly what characters they were playing.
