What are people saying?

  • riraru's rating of the film Gundermann

    Eine sehr dichte, informative Biographie über eine skurrile Persönlichkeit, die Alexander Scheer herausragend verkörpert, gar kopiert. Auffallend detaillierte Ausstattung und perfekte DDR-Settings. (Was nicht direkt beantwortet wird: Warum Gundermann trotz Erfolgs nicht mit diesem mörderischen Baggerfahrerschichtdienst aufgehört hat: Der Rhythmus der Schaufelräder hat ihn zu Texten inspiriert.)
