No, we did not look it. But we were rebels.

Two years after this film was shot, Gerhard, on the right, took the class register and took off to Greece without telling anyone. I envied his courage. But Gerhard is dead now. Somebody told me that he died alone on a farm in Romania. That was in 2003. He was 38 years old.

What happened in those years?
