A deeply serious comedy (or a deeply comedic drama) about the human consequences of the fall of the DDR. Excellent acting.

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.
