This film shows a great insight into the GDR and the oppression people in this regime experienced. There are several role models, and the films overall theme is that people can be changed into being 'good'
wow... if you manage to get through the first 45 minutes or so you will be rewarded by an amazing movie. I wish they could go back and edit the boring first part because the middle and ending were amazing. This is a forgiegn film (english subtitles!) that i would recommend to kids my age, but not younger.
