“As we were dreaming” is a German film directed by Andreas Dresen, based on the novel of the same name by author Clemens Meyer about a group of East German friends in Leipzig at the time of the German reunification.

Andreas Dresen conveys in this specifically German coming-of-age story before and after the fall of the wall with a lot of humour and rousing drive, the very special way of life of his youthful protagonists. Dani, Mark, Rico, Pitbull and Paul live in the intoxicating raptures of a special time. Years in which societies and systems collide and everything, really everything seems possible. The boys are thirteen when the story begins in the GDR, seventeen, when it ends in the new Germany.
