Requested DVD release with english subtitles
I believe this is one of germany most significant movies.
from a cultural, historical and artistic point of view.
Made behind the iron curtain, where it was made with an unusual amount
of artistic freedom and liberties. Made only 20 years past WW2, it had people
working on it, that experienced some of the scenes depicted in the movie.
I viewed this movie with some of my canadian friends, who I had a night long discussion with. They where moved,impressed and full of questions. American's often seem to have a very superficial view on matters european, nevertheless
they did leave intrigued and surprised about our complex german culture.
