Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A balanced, thorough and well-documented chronicle of how one Germany became two, then one again."
‑ Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post
"On the surface, Beller's film is an acute primer on mid-century socialist statism gone inevitably screwy, but beneath it, there's something to be gleaned about the psychology of German nationhood."
‑ Michael Atkinson, Village Voice
"As familiar as much of this history may be, to hear it recounted by those who lived it lends it a new emotional immediacy."
‑ Stephen Holden, New York Times
"...not a frame of film is wasted in telling its story of lives tortured, drugged, humiliated, and terrorized by fascist, pro-communist ideology."
‑ Elias Savada, Nitrate Online
"A frightening look at Communist-controlled East Germany."
‑ V.A. Musetto, New York Post
"Beller's history of dissent in the German Democratic Republic is admirably concise and surprisingly thorough."
‑ Ken Fox, TV Guide's Movie Guide
