Good Bye Lenin! (enter site | trailer)
October, 1989 was a bad time to fall into a coma if you
lived in East Germany - and this is precisely what
happens to Alex's proudly socialist mother. Alex has a
big problem on his hands when she suddenly awakens
eight months later. Her heart is so weak that any shock
might kill her. And what could be more shocking than the
fall of the Berlin Wall and and triumph of capitalism in
her beloved East Germany?
To save his mother, Alex transforms the family apartment
into an island of the past, a kind of socialist-era museum
where his mother is lovingly duped into believing
nothing has changed.
