Storyline

Berlin, 1989. Sascha is a young East German border guard and Franzi is a lively young West German woman who's just moved into a flat next to Sascha's watchtower at the Berlin Wall. It takes only a slight mishap and a selfless act of chivalry and the two fall in love. But soon the Stasi believes they are witnessing the start of a revolt. This is the time of mass protests and East Germans taking refuge in the West German embassy in Prague after all. Franzi and Sascha have to find their ways to stand up for their love and strive for the impossible; to bring down the wall. Written by The Film Catalogue

I liked it
1 August 2011 | by cran_kiddoSee all my reviews

This is not a masterpiece, maybe I won't remember it in two years, but I had a good time watching it on TV. This is not an historical piece, although you get an idea of the muddle that meant having Germany separated by a barrier.

I would say it's a chick flick set in the last days of the Berlin Wall.

The "bad" guys (those opposed to the love of the protagonist) are all unidimensional; and again, I didn't mind, because I understand this is not an historical movie (made me remember a bit of Billy Wilder's "One, Two, Three": he didn't give a damn about being politically correct with capitalists nor the communists.)

The leads are good in their roles, making you root for them and their romance; the secondary characters are funny and contribute with comic relief moments.

I would watch it again. 7/10.
