Der Tunnel – The Tunnel

Really good, tension-filled film based on the true story of how a group of people dug a tunnel under the Berlin Wall in the 1960s, to bring their loved ones from East to West.  Excellent performances from Heino Ferch and Nicolette Krebitz, but even the high-tension can’t alter the fact that the film is, at 2.5 hours, just a tad too long.
