The camerawork, script-writing, acting and authenticity of this film were all a delight to watch. The characters were very real and human, although discriminated against in a closed minded German backdrop they represented the hope and spirit many of those on the backbenches of the society at the time managed to sustain.
As a young lesbian woman, I found, in some ways, I could relate to this film. It gave me hope, to think that, although times are not easy for me.
Love can prevail through the most terrible and difficult situations.
I would suggest this film to anyone, Gay or Straight, It's a touching and wonderfully crafted film, and I was enthralled from start to finish.
