I am a fan of Heiner Carow. He has directed some beautiful films. I had high expectations for this film, but was disappointed. "Ikarus" was a "B" film. The editing, cinematography, and score were deplorable. The scenes often lacked continuity and purpose. Scenes were spliced haphazardly together with no fade. Fred Delmare, a celebrated actor in the GDR, was portrayed as a "sleazy old man". His scene with Mathias's mother was questionable in purpose and unexplained. It was reminiscent of acting in a bad porno.

I do realize that DEFA studios were primitive and limited, however other DEFA films were beautifully crafted. Limited resources are no excuse. The movie production was rushed and careless. Some of the writing and acting, however, showed some promise. "Ikarus" would have been a higher quality film if made with more care and effort.
