Gorgeous, poignant romance
12 September 1998 | by LincMadSee all my reviews

Two men live only a few kilometers apart, and yet it is almost as if they are from different worlds -- East Berlin and West Berlin. Their blossoming romance is doomed by the Wall that separates their worlds, so they must savor the few moments they can share.
