A big-hearted, crowd-pleasing comedy set against the tumultuous period of German reunification starting in 1989, Good Bye, Lenin! is a treat for audiences of all nations. A devoted son is determined to prevent his frail mother from relapsing after being in a coma. She has no idea of the startling historical changes that have taken place while she was unconscious. Her son must erase all evidence of capitalism?s triumph. This affable film delivers genuine humor as it satirizes the political and social changes of the time.
A romantic comedy so smart and mature, it?s liberating. - Richard Corliss, Time Magazine
