Good Bye Lenin! Daniel Brühl, Katrin Sass, Chulpan Khamatova
The basic premise of this movie is that Daniel Brühl’s character, Alex, tries to protect his mother, played by Katrin Sass, from knowing that the Berlin wall came down and therefore put an end to the German Democratic Republic (GDR) . It’s funny, engaging and very entertaining. Plus, Daniel Brühl is soooooo hot 🙂 Definitely my German actor crush, lol.
Speaking of which, the next movie on my “must watch” list is
The Edukators Daniel Brühl, Julia Jentsch, Stipe Erceg, Burghart Klaubner
This film is about a group of friends (played by Daniel Brühl, Julia Jentsch, Stipe Erceg) who form a radical group set on “changing the world”. They get caught and a kidnapping follows! Another example of quality German film.
