AS WE WERE DREAMING
ALS WIR TRÄUMTEN
2015, The Match Factory, 117 min, Germany, Dir: Andreas Dresen

Director Andreas Dresen’s adaptation of Clemens Meyer’s novel follows a rowdy group of East German youths shortly after the fall of the Berlin Wall. Realizing that yesterday’s rules no longer apply, Rico, Daniel, Paul and Mark (Julius Nitschkoff, Merlin Rose, Frederic Haselon and Joel Basman, respectively) live in the moment, stealing cars, taking drugs and opening a disco that is soon besieged by neo-Nazi skinheads. A captivating study of a period that’s rarely explored through the lens of vérité, AS WE WERE DREAMING was a Golden Bear nominee at the 65th Berlin International Film Festival. In German with English subtitles.
