Worth to look at, especially Susanne Bormann
1 August 2004 | by loohzeeSee all my reviews

Had to watch this picture in DVD just because it is one of the few authentic and good German movies, like "Good-Bye Lenin". Good story, you have to know Bochum, and there's the unavoidable Berlin-part, a German combination of NYC and L.A., and an upright answer on "Where were you when the wall came down?". And most of all, it is a very German movie, not that kind of Hollywood-perfection. And Susanne Bormann plays an angel-role, "Britta". Believe it or not, playing an angel as a blonde seems to be the most difficult role (99 per cent of actresses just return "blonde"). And in the end come down to earth and become human, and join the connotations of Berlin and Britta, and leave them for real life. Keep "1 Angel" in mind. See this film and never "Soloalbum".
