Directed by Wolfgang Becker in 2003, this German tragicomedy depicts a family drama in East German during the fall of the Berlin Wall and the collapse of communism.
An ingenious idea makes this movie rise above farce to the level of sophisticated satire.
After their mother has a heart attack, her son and daughter resort to inventive methods to make sure that she doesn't realize how radically the world changed while she was in the hospital.
An amazing, beautiful and touching film.
A deeply serious comedy (or a deeply comedic drama) about the human consequences of the fall of the DDR. Excellent acting.
La experiencia que le espera a la nueva Cuba ! Good bye lousy system! Welcome to a new life, for all
Good acting, with a nice touch of humour in all the right places.
Really wonderful movie-- captures an important moment in history, also shows convincing portrayals of individuals living their lives at that moment.
Witty comedy whereby a young man goes to great lengths to hide the unification of Germany from his sick mother.
Not very many movies combine humour and drama as gracefully as this film. Subtle and brilliant! It's also fascinating to revisit this historical moment when Berlin reunified.
