Ellen Ueberschär’s Movie Pick

As a theologian, and a prominent member of Germany’s Lutheran Protestant Church, it’s interesting that Ellen Ueberschär’s favourite movie of all time should be the 1988 drama Einer trage des anderen Last – Bear Ye One Another’s Burden. It’s the story of the confrontation between a committed Marxist and a Protestant pastor. I remember seeing the movie in what was then still East Berlin and feeling very strongly that the Berlin Wall would soon fall.
