  • Goodbye Lenin

    I watched a German film called "Goodbye Lenin" tonight.

    This is a story about an East German family whose mother, a commited socialist, has a heart attack just before the wall falls. She is in a coma while the two countries unite and only comes out of it much later.

    Because the doctors tell her children that any excitement might kill their mother, the Children decide to pretend that East Germany still exists.

    An interesting premise. The film was funny. Not ROFL funny but amusing none the less. I liked the film.

    So if you speak German or don't mind reading subtitles you might want to check this one out.

        I thought it was a pretty good and nice movie. It's all foreign to me but I can understand the kid (man)'s nolstagia and the same with his mother.
        They sure went out of their way to make the old East Germany look better.....or at least less hedonistic.
