Best German Cinema in a long Time!
25 March 2016 | by kriskaiserSee all my reviews

It's been a long time but today I went out of the Cinema and felt astonished. Brigitte Maria Mayer took something old and dusty and transformed it into something great. . She did put a Mirror up in front of our "Today" Faces and the Society. Visually stunning and overwhelming. I could feel the betrayal and Pain. Emely Cox and and Valerie Koch brought tears to my eyes. German Cinema in the last years, made it hard for me to like. Tonight I changed my mind a bit. There is still Art out there. We, the Germans, are able to fulfill something great.. It hit every single nerve and I feel stopped and forced be be surprised again. If you get the chance to watch it ....DO! . This piece of Art is wonderful. I hope you will see the same in it as I do.
