MARCO is the main character in this movie entitled "Das Wunder von Berlin" or The Miracle of Berlin. He is a rebellious Punk Rocker complete with chains and black leather jacket with studs. All he does is drink beer and go to head banging rock concerts with his Punk Rocker pals. Enter Anja, his love interest. She is pretty wild and is under 24 hour surveillance by the STASI (Ministerium fuer Staatssichersicherheit of MfS), the DDR’s (East German Secret Police. To add more spice to the hot pot, Marco’s father is a Lieutenant Colonel in the STASI. Marco’s grandfather is an unrepentant Nazi who survived WW2. I saw this movie on Sun 1 November. A really fascinating movie that brings you from 1988 right up to the fall of the notorious Berlin Wall on 9 November 1989.
The 20th Anniversary is on Monday 9 November 2009!
I shall celebrate it, decadent Capitalist that I am, Ha! Ha!
Die Gedanken sind frei, immer!
