Movie Info

A group of kids grow up on the short, wrong (east) side of the Sonnenallee in Berlin, right next to one of the few border crossings between East and West reserved for German citizens. The antics of these kids, their families, of the "West German" friends and relatives who come to visit, and of the East German border guards, all serve to illustrate the absurdity of everyday life on the Sonnenallee, and therefore throughout the former East Germany.

Audience Reviews for Sonnenallee (Sun Alley)


A lighthearted German comedy that tries so hard to be inoffensive (an extended cut for TV has several new scenes absent from the theatrical version, some of them certainly more dramatic than anything we see here) that it will probably be more appealing to those who lived in that time.
