""Something To Do With the Wall"

Remembering the Berlin Wall

Amos Lassen


First Run Features brings us a new documentary on DVD which looks at a fascinating part of history, the Berlin Wall. Ross McElwee began making this film right before the wall fell and history was to be changed forever. Germans and other residents who remember the Wall tell their stories and we are drawn into the film by the insightful comments and the historical narration. The Wall was the symbol of hard-line Communism and the Cold War. We see Germany during and after the Wall and some of what we learn is amazing. We become acquainted with the unified city in a way I would have never thought possible and the movie almost plays like fiction. This is an absolutely wonderful film.
