Andrew nagorski… Shakespeare has constructed a moving story that speaks volumes about an era and a political system that is rapidly slipping into the recesses of our memory. As one minor British character points out, East Germany -- now thankfully defunct -- boasted "the vilest regime in the Communist bloc." Vilest of all was the behavior that such regimes routinely induced in their terrified citizens and foreign visitors confronted with unfamiliar moral dilemmas. Most people would prefer to forget how they behaved in those situations, but Shakespeare's Snowleg can't help but remind us of the good, the bad and the shameful.
