Incredibly convincing documentary-drama
Unfortunately there are rarely exceptions to the rule of a lack of professionalism of German docu-drama - this is one. In a very balanced approach this is no propaganda, but shows the many sides of this important political figure. Cruel, how German media has otherwise banned Kohl from reports due to the bribe scandal which is none in all other western countries, not even by morale means. However the left wing majority has deemed Kohl to be persona non grata despite his quite historical importance for reunification. Gives immense inner views of CDU powerplay and private matters. Acting is superbe, genius script, technically great, worthwhile watching not only for politically interested audience.
