Communist Redux: 'Goodbye, Lenin'

A German film now in U.S. theaters tells the story of an East German woman who falls into a coma in 1989, missing the fall of the Berlin Wall. When she awakes, her family must prevent her from learning anything that might shock her -- leading them to re-create the fallen communist regime. NPR's Bob Mondello has a review.
