5.0 out of 5 stars Extraordinary work
First you should know:

You see two movies - not documentaries. Tilda Swinton acts as a person, who cicled in 1988 along the Berlin Wall and (maybe) tries to find her own traces 20 years later.

Both are about Berlin Wall - hidden places and poetic views, including poetry and silence.

Very helpful for people, who want to see different ways...

2.0 out of 5 stars Too conceptual
I imagine deep meaning in this movie. I can't see it, really, but can kind of imagine it. The inherent drama of the Berlin Wall (my brother patrolled that border during the Cold War), the contrast of Wall vs. No-Wall - these things changed lives, and families, and generations of families.

I imagine deep meaning in this movie. I can't see it, really, but can kind of imagine it. The inherent drama of the Berlin Wall (my brother patrolled that border during the Cold War), the contrast of Wall vs. No-Wall - these things changed lives, and families, and generations of families. Then there's the personal element of Swinton navigating all that physically, by bicycle, with her majestic physique.

But, somehow, it never touched me. I have no personal experience of the city (before or after Wall), or the wall (before or after Wall). All I see is a woman on a bike. A fascinating woman, admitted, but many fascinate. She's extraordinary, but this strikes my sensibilities as less than ordinary.
