While homes for asylum seekers are burning in (East) Germany, Voigt portrays three Leipzig skinheads in this depressing picture of a “lost generation” in a country in ruins. A scene with the legendary “building tycoon” Jürgen Schneider lead to a small scandal and a temporary ban on the film.

Taking stock five years after the reunification: What became of the dreams and hopes of 1989? People moved out into the world, settled down in a new life and now realise that it’s no less drab than the old one. Nostalgia and disenchantment, the struggle for survival and the end of a revolution on the couch.

Letztes Jahr Titanic Andreas Voigt

Leipzig, December 1989 to December 1990. Insecurity, bitterness, anxiety, irony and gallows humour, everyday life and the last dance on a sinking ship. The revolution becomes a carnival.

Five Leipzigers between December 1989 and 1990. In a surreal setting we see political slogans degenerate to boozy singing, political sex parties get ready for the elections, and gold diggers from the West arrive while the East moves West. Insecurity and fears, gallows humour and the last dance on a sinking ship. A grotesque.
