Can't get enough of SBS. Tonight, on SBS2, I caught Das Wunder von Bern, which is a true classic. Sentimental, but not over the top. And, somehow, I immediately knew that the story centred on the coal-mining town of Essen, where my friend Markus lives. I had an enjoyable visit there a few years back, and clearly remember the Krupp mansion.
And then I switched to SBS1 and landed part-way through La Pianiste. I should have gone to bed but, once you've started watching a French movie, it is hard to stop.
