Gunderman: Discovered & Defined
9 August 2019 | by gincainSee all my reviews

I'm not German but I do appreciate this movie very much. It is a sweet story of a gifted man and musician. The writer and director should be commended for interweaving a complicated love story, of a conflicted but quiet man within an historical period that helps define Germany today. Very moving, very tender accompanied by great soundtrack of Gunderman's instantly likable music.
