Fantastic
6 July 2003 | by ctjones-1See all my reviews

Beautifully filmed. By turns touching, funny, and painfully sad.

It is definitely a classic. A wonderful story for the gay/lesbian audience, and anti-authoritarian to anyone else who's interested. Wonderful artistic depiction of the characters.

Besides, Dorothea Wieck really is hot.
