I watched this movie several days ago and it is my belief that this movie is a must-see for those who was or is affected by the collapse of Berlin Wall. What do you think?

I thought this movie was very entertaining and surprisingly funny - for a German film ;). I don't know if it's representative though of the experience of those who lived through those events. It interested me particulary because I had spent some time in West Berlin in the mid 70's and went back and forth into East Berlin many times.

This short video about the two walls - the one dividing Berlin as well as the one dividing East and West Germany - might interest you also: "Eingemauert!" Die innerdeutsche Grenze (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jlbAUFvh04k) or the English version: "Walled In!" Germany's inner border (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OwQsTzGkbiY)
