Movie Reviews

East German "Osterns" - a piece of cold war history :)
nadjacs | New Jersey, USA | 04/04/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"As soon as I learned that there was such a thing as these "Red Westerns" or "Osterns" (from the German word for East), I knew I had to watch them, and I was not disappointed. They are somewhat heavy-handed in their cold war propaganda, and the costumes (particularly the wigs) leave something to be desired, and this combines to make the movies a bit more comedic than intended, but the acting is fine and I personally found them enjoyable movies.

The subtitles are generally well-done (readable and relatively accurate), and the dialogue is clearly spoken, so they would also be good for students of German.
