I liked it
This is not a masterpiece, maybe I won't remember it in two years, but I had a good time watching it on TV. This is not an historical piece, although you get an idea of the muddle that meant having Germany separated by a barrier.
I would say it's a chick flick set in the last days of the Berlin Wall.
The "bad" guys (those opposed to the love of the protagonist) are all unidimensional; and again, I didn't mind, because I understand this is not an historical movie (made me remember a bit of Billy Wilder's "One, Two, Three": he didn't give a damn about being politically correct with capitalists nor the communists.)
The leads are good in their roles, making you root for them and their romance; the secondary characters are funny and contribute with comic relief moments.
I would watch it again. 7/10.
