combines fairytale elements with actual documentary footage, and the personal with the political, creating a contemporary allegory of the dreams and delusions upon which the lives of East Germans were sustained.

The real story is how ideologies melt when it comes to affairs of the heart. In that way, the movie has an appeal that goes way beyond its country's borders.

Angie Ward
Christianity Today

Succeeds as a comedy, as a glimpse at a tumultuous time in European history, and as a thoughtful look at the great lengths to which people will go for important relationships.

A political comedy that reaches you right down in your soul, reminding us without any Benigni-ish moral frivolity that life sure is complicated, but it is also beautiful.

"The premise runs its course well before the end. But the film more than compensates with its bright good nature and intelligence."

Director Wolfgang Becker can claim the film's depth as its greatest achievement. He has taken an absurd situation, a silly premise, and added weight to the humor.

The story is almost gag-inducingly silly and unlikely, but director Wolfgang Becker's film is just sweet enough to help the medicine go down.
