it's very, very good. manages to be incredibly balanced and decent, they avoided "they were wrong and we now are right" stuff in there, despite showing the bad side of life under communism - and then under capitalism. and it's quite funny too.

I wouldn't mind seeing it, either. And dj, wash your mouth out with soap! I like a good pun as man, but that's going too far...

Ostalgie is what the Germans call nostalgia for the Communist regime.

Ah, so it wasn't dj's fault. It's the Germans'...

the plot of the movie is kinda hard to believe. Although this could be due to my upbringing in Moscow :-)
