This movie was like something I have never seen before. Although I did not relate to any of the characters, I did sympathize with the main character Hedwig. I found her story quite inspiring being an immigrant and all. Her journey was especially hard because of his country’s political standpoint. Not many films bring up the Berlin wall they always focus on the Nazi regime. The use of flashbacks to tell the story was done well. I am not the biggest fan of musical numbers, but I enjoyed some of the songs in the beginning of the film. It all started to fall apart towards the end of the movie. I did not understand some of the metaphors. I did notice some of the characters evolve and begin to heal at the end.
