Win a DVD

20th February 2004 at 00:00
Nominated for best non-English language film at the Bafta awards and having swept the board at the European Film Awards, the critically acclaimed Goodbye Lenin! is the international success everyone's talking about.

Alex (Daniel Brohl), aware that a sudden shock could kill his mother (Katrin Sass), who is recently awoken from a coma and unaware that the Berlin Wall has come down, decides to pretend that communism has not been overthrown. This is not easy, especially as Alex and his sister have embraced the changes themselves: Alex is working for a western satellite TV company and his sister has quit college to take up a job at Burger King.

Goodbye Lenin! is available to buy on DVD and to rent and buy on video from March 1 from UGC Films UK and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.

Friday has four copies of the DVD to give away. For a chance to win one, send your name and address to or on a postcard to the address on the right. Mark your message Goodbye Lenin! offer. The first four entries out of the hat on February 26 will win.
