Deutschland 83 - tales of the cold war between East and West
Review of Deutschland 83 (DVD) by cr01

Advantages: An excellent piece of fiction in historical drama
Disadvantages: Runs just a little out of steam

To my mind the most impactful life-changing events of the past 30 years came with the falling of the old Eastern Europe and the so-called Iron Curtain in 1989. While the American centric media seem to obsess upon 9/11 and its after effects, I think it is ... Read review
