Nearly twenty years after the fall of the Wall, it is still difficult to answer the questions of their children and friends and come to terms with a very personal and painful past.

History and Social Aspects
18 November 2006 | by d-beutnerSee all my reviews

I watched the film by accident, and was fascinated from the first second. I have to say that I just watched "Winterkinder" - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0478326 - a few weeks before and since then was fascinated by the topic in general - the for the ones born "later" unbelievable and sometimes hard to understand "daily reality" of the history of our parent and grandparents. In one comment on this film is written that the film always would be "positive" and never depressing. I don't share that opinion. When the three children of one of the Stasi victims don't even have the urgent need to talk and/or to understand their parents history (and tend to say "it's history, we should come to an end now"), I think it cannot be more depressing, if one tries to feel like the parents must feel listening to their children. The film is necessary, sometimes depressing, mostly informative and all together just great. And of course, there are very stirring moments, which also can be named "positive" (when the two daughters of another victim start to think about talking with their father and asking themselves why they never did until now). I'm very keen on watching this film next year in Dresden, I hope I will be able to manage that date, inclusive meeting some actors!
