Opinion

From Library Staff

Alix's mom was in a coma when the wall fell--and surely if she finds out what happened, she'll have a heart attack. The laugh out loud comedy builds as deception adds to deception, but is this not also a parable about the changing times?

Really wonderful movie-- captures an important moment in history, also shows convincing portrayals of individuals living their lives at that moment.

Witty comedy whereby a young man goes to great lengths to hide the unification of Germany from his sick mother.
