In 1989, on the eve of the fall of the Wall, Germany is still divided into two states. In East Berlin, we celebrate the 90th anniversary of Wilhelm, a convinced Stalinist communist. His son Kurt, an intellectual spent in Russian prisons, is present but his grandson Sascha shines by his absence: he fled to West Germany.
With desperate humor, the film portrays a family that is disintegrating just like the country. Successful adaptation of Eugen Ruge’s bestseller, with the great Bruno Ganz in the role of patriarch.
