Geteilte Liebe Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Max Klett (Johannes Herrschmann) is an East German lieutenant who is being trained for a mission in West Germany in this espionage spoof. The shy officer takes tango and etiquette lessons in order to seduce Elly Wackornagel (Adrianna Altaras). Elly is the spinster secretary and impatient mistress of Colonel Dinklage (Alfred Edel). The hen-pecked Colonel not only fights the Cold War for his country but contends with his harridan shrew of a wife (Elizabeth Zundel). After a three-year affair, Elly is impatient that the Colonel will never divorce his wife to marry her, leaving the door of love ajar for Max. The film successfully lampoons the German military and nationalism on both sides of the Iron Curtain and the Teutonic tendency to blindly follow whatever side is winning. ~ Dan Pavlides, Rovi
