STORY DESCRIPTION:

On the outskirts of Berlin, German writer Moritz von Uslar sets off in pursuit of East German clichés like unemployment, alcoholism, emigration and right-wing radicalism. With great empathy and intuition Uslar observes and describes what he discovers in the provincial town of Zehdenick: homeland pension, a pils at the bar, a barbecue under the German flag, hanging out at the Aral petrol station – and the everyday life of young men who, although they may not have a particularly great future ahead of them, have a pretty keen sense of humour. The film is a thoughtful story involving insider observations which makes for a great piece of contemporary history. It describes Germany, 20 years after reunification, in a sometimes drastic but always loving and completely original way.
