...Becker presents a story that is touching to the audience. It presents a son who is devoted to sacrifice for her mother, despite the many challenges that he encounters.

The reunion of the long separation leads to awkward re-acclimation, which very few films would explore. The director shows that in the 1960s, there was a specific group that believed in NASA’s like being a sham and no single man... Review: Good Bye, Lenin! (Germany, 2003) Affiliation Good Bye, Lenin!
