Anna Maria Mühe,
When a movie deals with emancipation, racism and a coming of age story, with a bit of love story thrown in for good mixture, you may be excused for having your doubts. And it may feel at times as if it tries to tackle too many things. But overall the acting is really good (more often than not and I really don't say that often with German movies) and the story is more than worth telling on more than one occasions.
Not sure how historically accurate everything is (I haven't checked), but all seems plausible. From Nazis gaining power to creative people being oppressed, to sexism in the workplace not to mention in schools too. Well told and nicely paced, this is quite intriguing, no matter if it was made for TV or not
