The year is 1989 and East and West Germany are still divided. Alex (Daniel Bruhl) and his sister Ariane (Maria Simon) live in East Germany with their single mother, Christiane (Katrin Sass) who is a staunch Socialist. When Alex's mother witnesses his arrest on a protest march, she suffers a heart attack and falls into a coma for eight months, just enough time for the Berlin wall to come tumbling down along with all of East Germany's ideals.

Eight months later, Christiane wakes up and things have changed. The doctors warn Alex that any shock could bring on a fatal heart attack. He then realises he must convince his mother that her beloved Communism has not been overthrown but is in fact triumphing over Capitalism. Alex then sets out to recreate every detail of the old East inside the four walls of their tiny council flat... what begins as a little white lie, soon turns into a major deception with hilarious consequences!

good film. def worth getting at this price

Funnier than you might think. Deffo worth a gander.

FANTASTIC film - funny and moving. HOT HOT HOT.

Sometimes shown on BBC, but a cracking film.

Great film :thumbsup:

Good Price, seems to go up and down again, has been this before.

Good film too, one of my favs

Great film, heat from me

Excellent Film

This is a great little film with a delicate sense of humour, well worth a few quid. I openly admit I would never have thought a foreign film about the cultural differences that faced Germany when the wall fell could be in any interesting let alone funny but I was tricked into seeing it at a "secret screening" and was more than pleasantly surprised.

A big American guy stood up and left 2 mins in to the film when he realised it was subtitled - maybe he forgot his reading glasses or maybe he was an ignorant Yankee type, either way most folk discreetly laughed at him while others envied him for not being guilted into staying, ha ha! It added to the humour of the film itself and I was glad I stuck around.

I thought it was partially funded by Channel 4?

I lived in the USA for a good number of years...

Don't forget, for the average Yank, socialism or even communism is akin to devil worshipping :roll:

People looked at me with "shock and awe" in their eyes when I explained I didn't go to church :whistling:

One chap that I knew (actually fairly well travelled too!) had a conversation with me at a party one night. He said that it must have been terrifying growing up in the UK (Scotland) with the threat of the Soviet invasion and nuclear war hanging over us......:whistling:

I said not really and set him straight that the Russain miners actually sent money to the Scottish miners when they were on strike :w00t:

Personally I'm an Anarcho-Capitalist

No mention of Channel 4/Film Four on the imdb page for it. Regardless, BBC4 (and maybe BBC2) have shown it previously.
