"Sonnenallee" (1999)

Recommended Posts

I couldn't find a complete English subtitled version of either "Look Who's Back" or "Goodbye Lenin," but found Something Else. At the short end of a street in Berlin, at a border crossing for East/West relatives, a group of Teen buys are puzzled by Girls. These East German high school kids have Pop music on their minds, trying to "color within the lines" at FDJ meetings, and trying to impress the girls. Will the "revolutionary" kid join the DDR army or find a muse? Will the kid obsessed with The Rolling Stones' "Exile on Main Street" get a real double LP set? Will the kid smitten with Miriam find a way into her heart? Don't be like the "Westies" on the platform, jeering at "primitive Easties," and try an exotic, drug-filled Cola!
