Beloved Berlin Wall
Berlin, 1989. Sascha is a young East German border guard; Franzi a lively young West German woman who′s just moved into a flat next to Sascha′s watchtower at the Berlin Wall. It takes only a slight mishap and a selfless act of chivalry – and the two fall in love. But soon the Stasi believes they are witnessing the start of a revolt – this is the time of mass protests and East Germans taking refuge in the West German embassy in Prague after all. Franzi and Sascha have to find their ways to stand up for their love and strive for the impossible – to bring down the wall…
Casting a perceptive look at the last days of the GDR, Beloved Berlin Wall is a lively screwball comedy set against the harsh historical facts, a tale of a love affair that becomes an act of civil courage. Written and directed by Peter Timm ("Go Trabi Go", "Rudy, the Racing Pig"), the film stars Grimme Award-winner Felicitas Woll ("Dresden"), Maxim Mehmet ("NVA") and Thomas Thieme ("The Lives of Others") in the lead roles.
