Awesome: Good Bye, Lenin!
  • The amazing "Flying Lenin Scene": After awaking from a long coma and her children keeping the end of communism a secret from her, a loyal socialist woman leaves her appartment for the first time to find a world that's very different from what she had known all her life. As she starts to realize that something is really wrong, a helicopter comes flying by, carrying away a giant dismanteled Lenin statue that seems to stretch out its arm to her for one last time, before disappearing into the sunset. It's even more amazing to watch in a theatre with the music and noise of the helicopter drowning out everything else. Clearly one of the greatest achievements of German cinema in the last decades.
