The good old days of communism,
This review is from: Good Bye Lenin! [DVD]  (DVD)
I grew up in Britain. I heard about the fall of the eastern Block through the radio and TV. Yet this film made me nostalgic for the good old days of communism ... what am I talking about? What I'm trying to say is that this film puts you right there, how it must have been to grow up in East Germany, the exhilaration of freedom when the wall came down, and then years later the feeling that maybe there were things from that time which weren't so bad after all.
Goodbye Lenin is many things, but above all it's a connection with real people living through dramatic times. And yes I suppose it's funny too.
