The melodramatic story was praised both by the critics and the audience and won the German Academy Award for Best Screenplay and the Bavarian Film Award for Best Direction and Cinematography.
Dr. Heike Fuller’s introduction of the film was a part of the so-called Wunderbar Together initiative, which celebrates and promotes the German-American friendship through arts, culture, language, sports, and business.
