    Press

    Very cheerful, but impressively stylish.

    Wolfgang Höbel, Spiegel

    Aided by excellent art direction, this incredibly ambitious first film succeeds in reviving – bathed in a warm, almost nostalgic light – an era when dreams of a better future were woven with enthusiasm.

    Stefan Dobroiu, Cineuropa
