Last night I watched GOODBYE LENIN, in the original German and no subtitles. I'm clever like that*. Great film. It tells the story of an East Berlin family in 1989 before the wall came down. The mother of the family has a heart attack and lies in a coma for 8 months. When she comes round, her family is warned that any excitement could kill her. So they have to pretend everything is as it was and that they are still living in the socialist paradise that was the DDR. It has many comical as well as moving moments. It's three hours long but well worth it. Buy it (with subtitles!) HERE.
* Actually, it was a challenge I set myself. I lived in Germany for two years and studied German at university. At one stage I was completely fluent. I wanted to watch the film partly to check whether I could understand everything still. Mission accomplished!
