Satirist Jochen Wiedermann provides a double whammy both in content, and as co-scripter and actor in this intellectual take-off on forms of political hypocrisy in Germany between the 1930s and 1960. Perhaps a little too cerebral for the average filmgoer, the story covers the wobbles from one side of the fence to the other in the careers of a former Nazi who ends up working in East Germany, a communist who leaves off working in East Germany to head West, and others who supported Hitler either passively or actively and later suffer from a convenient memory loss when asked about the Nazis.
