Storyline

Flanders, a famous female author, travels 1989 after the fall of the Berlin wall into the German capital. She is deeply depressed of the events because she saw the communistic states as a very good thing that has now ended. In the joy of these days she finds no person to understand her, so she has to travel back to Munich. After meeting several people, known and unknown, it seems as if there will be no way to go. Written by Benjamin Stello

A sad tale about the loss of belonging
13 July 2020 | by denis-23791See all my reviews

What happens if the world turns upside down over night? Socialist writer Hannah loses faith in life when the Berlin Wall comes down. Neglected as a writer, and also as a lover, she tries to find a new grip in East Berlin. Excellently played, beautifully shot, wonderful music. Very memorable female hero, and fantastically casted supporting actors as well. Very sad but very touching story challenging social conventions.
