Sonnenallee (1999) – Dir. Leander Haussmann – 101 mins.

A group of kids grow up on the short, east side of the Sonnenallee   in Berlin, right next to one of the few border crossings between East and West reserved for German citizens. The antics of these kids, their families, of the “West German” friends and relatives who come to visit, and of the East German border guards, all serve to illustrate the absurdity of everyday life on the Sonnenallee.

In German with English sub-titles.
