GOODBYE LENIN

A few months ago Thomas showed me this sweet movie. Isn't it so refreshing to come across something that isn't American!? I must show it to my kids some time once they are past the we can't be bothered with subtitles stage. Marcel would cope already but Lots would definitely find subtitles off-putting. It will be interesting to watch their reaction given the events of '89 feel like very irrelevant ancient history to them, when they feel like yesterday to me - especially given I was living in Germany in '89.

You might also want to show it to your aging old folks if it's that good ,..,., we too remember '89 still ,,,
But since our memory is going a pace with age it may be that you should do this sooner rather than later ? Lest we forget !!
