The future lay in our hands. Uncertain, yet promising.
After months in a coma, Alex’ mom wakes up. The news of East Germany falling down while she was asleep would be fatal for a socialist idealist like her, so Alex takes a decision: to mantain the illusion that the Berlin wall has never fallen down. German tragicomedy Good Bye, Lenin! narrates this sweet and funny story while showing the major changes that the country’s society went through at the time. Totally recommended.
