I always find it harder to review the good movies. I guess thats the way of life. The negative things always get pointed out, but the positive things, because they don't disturb our universe, are usually under our radar.

So, anyway, this is a good movie. You might even call it a feel good movie. Well, no actually you wouldn't. Bad things happen.

Its set in East Berlin before the wall came down. Essentially, its about a government agent who is spying on an author and he begins to like the author (not like that you perv), I guess, and lets him get away with smuggling an article to West Germany even though it costs the agent his career.

Its good stuff. Believe me it is. Its not for illiterate knuckle dragging mouth breathers though (its subtitled).
9.0 out of 10
