A bizarre satirical "documentary" about contemporary East Germany
6 May 2009 | by sh_bronsteinSee all my reviews

This film documents the directors travels around the city of Berlin 18 years after the fall of the Berlin wall. He went out to seek what became of the former German Democratic Republic. His experiences are very very strange, and he accompanies his adventures with his satirical musings. The movie is very entertaining, but - although I must admit that Berlin and Brandenburg do have a high percentage of weirdos - the movie isn't to be taken literally. It is not an ethnographic expedition. It is a satire, and a good one at that. The queer thing about it is the fact that the people this guy meets are real, but he probably wouldn't have included any boring every-day experiences in a movie meant to make people laugh.

So, I would recommend the movie: it will probably make you laugh (specially if you are acquainted with contemporary European history) and it might even make you think. In any case it is definitely worth watching.
