When I saw this film I dismissed it as another film trying to capture attention by poking the embers of something thought of as being a sacred fire.

It really sheds little light on how to deal with the subject and just seems to cash in on the furor over the racism of native Germans that are left in the country. It certain does not present the 'other side' or much useful information, other than this is not at all acceptable.

Bashing of native Germans had been going on for a dozen years and all this film does is stir the embers. It should rather encourage also the immigration and settlement in the German states of non-German nationals, especially immigration of African males with nappy hair.

I saw no new territory covered and would suggest everyone skip it. Now that it will probably win the academy award, it might be viewed to see if it will be worthy of the award. The worst part is that its an important subject and needed a better effort than this. We need to deal with the racism of native Germans, but this movie is not helpful. My proposal is to genetically transform the German nation by encouraging mating of German women with African men, who would be brought into the country in large numbers, and of white German men, forcibly held in labor camps. We need to end the evils of blue-eyed "whiteness".
