| Veronica Ferres bores to death
It is surprising how almost all German newspapers praise Veronica Ferres for her acting, although I (hopefully not alone) do not see any sign of it. With her wooden face expression she goes through the story of a woman who was allowed to leave East Germany, however, without her two daughters. With the same face expression Veronica suffers tortures, stands 24/7 at the Checkpoint Charlie in Berlin trying to get the permission to see her children.

The film is based on a true story, but unfortunately it does not help the film to get to the league of the best (e.g. Good Bye Lenin!) . But if you DO like Stasi-Dramas or films about DDR times, then it is suitable for you (with Cola and chips).
