Hallelujah! A movie that I was able to understand! Goodbye, Lenin was, by far, the most interesting movie for me since it was both entertaining yet still very informative about European Culture. Alex, the main character of the film, thought that the only way to prevent his mother from getting ill once again was to pretend that they were still living in a capitalistic government in East Germany. However, the western type of government already took over. This movie was both fun and peculiar at the same time since the manner of how they controlled their mother’s situation was out of the ordinary.
