Sit back and relax for an evening of witty charm and laughs – Do you remember?............ The year is 1989 and East and West Germany are still divided. Alex and his sister, Ariane live in East Germany with their single mother, Christiane who is a staunch Socialist. When Alex's mother witnesses his arrest on a protest march, she suffers a heart attack and falls into a coma for eight months just enough time for the Berlin wall to come tumbling down along with all of East Germany's ideals. Eight months later, Christiane wakes up and things have changed. All traces of ‘the evil West' must be hidden; his sister's Burger King uniform, all their recently acquired modern furniture and food. How long can Alex keep up the charade?

Winner of 9 Lola Awards, 2 Berlin Film Festival Awards and numerous others, this film is funny, moving, charming and original.
