| Outstanding film - if you only see one German film, see this one
This is my favourite German film - if you get a chance to watch 'Goodbye Lenin' and 'Berlin Nachtgestalten' as well, you have pretty much a 360 degree panorama of life in Berlin after the Wende. Superb acting, and very funny, too. The beautiful thing about this film is that the humour, being largely visual, makes it very accessible to viewers whose German isn't so fluent.

Storming performance by Ricky Tomlinson

If you only see one German film, see this one, not some pretentious tosh like 'Lola Rennt' or the uniquitous Verlorene Ehre von Katharina Blum
