2 October 1999 | J. Steed
BLEAK AND INDIFFERENT
Not uninteresting, but also bleak and indifferent film that seems to have been directed without much conviction. The drama concerns an East German ex-political prisoner who in 1968 East Germany tries to get a grip on his life again. Somewhere in the middle someone asks the man: What is your problem? Yes, that is what the viewer wants to know too and also what the problem of the director was. Michael Gwisdek in a fine performance walks about in this film without any purpose.

In march 1989 shooting started as an East German film when East Germany was still a state; unexpectedly shooting was okayed, though the film was supposed to give a biting ironic view on East German life and the Stasi (Secret State Police). As it turned out the film would be finished after East Germany had seized to exist. In its harmless ironic view on the Stasi (symbolized by two very odd bureaucrats) and its further lack of power the film was already obsolete when it premiered.
