In the joy of these days she finds no person to understand her, so she has to travel back to Munich. After meeting several people, known and unknown, it seems as if there will be no way to go.Written by
Exposed by openness- as depicted by the collapse of the wall. High minded Marxist and high life beneficiary travels west but is rejected as a fake. Returning east the same fate befalls her, travelling back and forth she descends into madness as her rejections mount.Degraded and rejected by the east and west
Some brilliant depictions of humiliation as she tries to return a posh coat to a exclusive shop only to be told no
The acting is magnificent from Hannelore Elsner It's shot in black and white which adds to the power of the story
A brilliant and harrowing tale perhaps too inevitable in it's outcome but the chain smoking makes up for that
