Anybody seen this?
JUst been given a copy and have heard good things.
have been meaning to see it again
Cool, well looking forward to it.
Even if the baldy bloke did remind me a little bit of Steve Coppell.
He's dead now
Not convinced the accident at the end maintained the quality of the rest of the film, though.
who found it a bit disappointing?
Despite being a German film, it seemed like a feel-good Hollywood-ised take on Stasi surveillance. Starts off really promisingly, but the way the main character develops was pretty unconvincing (sorry for the vagueness - trying to avoid spoilers), and the ending was terrible.
I think it was partly cos I saw it soon after reading "Seven Lies" by James Lasdun, which has a far more interesting take on the role/fate of dissident artists in East Germany.
I enjoyed the film, but the latter actions of the main protagonist seem out of character if everything that you know up to that point is to be believed.
Please god no. Why why why? Is it so hard for people to follow subtitles...fuck's sake.
