1986: East Germany is broke, Perestroika is real, terrorism plagues Europe, the AIDS crisis intensifies and the struggle against apartheid rages on.

Highly watchable German drama set in Europe and Africa - Deutschland '86 review by PV

Spoiler Alert
07/08/2019

This is the sequel to the lower budget Deutschland 83 which I actually preferred. That was set in Europe; this takes place a lot in South Africa and other African countries, which is very timely, but maybe less interesting for me.

However, this is still classy drama and better than most UK drama, for sure.

As usual, some neat twists and turns, confusion about how to trust and action scenes. Too much focus on romance this time though, which borders on treating the main actor as a sex object - feminists used to complain about when female actors were treated in the same way! Such double standards really.
