Considered one of this season’s revelation movies, “A mother against GW Bush” is a comedy based on a true story, which has the ability to make people laugh even by delving into a highly dramatic story with global resonance: a great work of screenplay, which actually got one of the two Berlin Bears.

With the help of an idealistic lawyer – played by the famous German actor Alexander Scheer – and thanks to the witty simplicity of a proletarian mother, the woman raises the bar until she faces US President Bush to defend her son’s human rights . prisoner, who even gathered around him a huge movement of opinion.
