The German Stasi series is an international bestseller. Now Netflix has one too: “Kleo.” One of Milk’s killers goes on a campaign of revenge after the reunion. You really have to see it – especially because of a woman.

BBefore we get started, let’s clear up the misunderstanding before it arises. And we’re talking about soup. There is a can that has been available in large supermarket chains in the East for years. In it you see a fairly blond child in the white shirt and red neckerchief of the Thälmann pioneers. With the spoon, something red around his mouth, as if he had just sucked a class enemy alive. The child, apparently a boy, is smiling with his teeth bare. Look seriously happy.

Solyanka school kitchen is the name of the enclosure. The words “with meat and sausage” and “simple, authentic and tastes like usual” are still on the label. A black, red, and gold ribbon with a hammer and compass also adorns the top edge of the cornflower wreath. The Federal Corporation for the Reassessment of the SED Dictatorship has now accused the manufacturer and distributor of manipulating it – there is also NVA field soup. As an example of canned nostalgia, so to speak.

The soup kitchen of Saxony-Anhalt defended itself by noting that there was definitely a need for “simple, authentic and as tasteful as it used to be”. And that no artificial flavors, colors or flavor enhancers were used in Schulsoljanka and NVA’s field soup. Of course, sarcasm is not mentioned as an element. Nobody understands sarcasm, especially not in cans.

System killing machine

Which finally brings us to “Kleo,” a new German series now starting on Netflix. An eight-part series about the fate of a top spy from the Reconnaissance Headquarters (HVA), a talented assassin in the service of Eric Milky.

One can certainly blame this eighth derivation of the GDR spy thriller (not so much), which one can always blame on the GDR spy thriller series which—particularly abroad, as demonstrated by “Germany 83FF” In 180 countries – there is a need. The German drama Stasi is a worldwide bestseller. Underestimate the importance of the DDR program is not. Because the story of Kleo Straub, who was betrayed and then retaliated, is full of artificial flavors, colorings, and flavor enhancers. And sarcastically. And madly. Perhaps this is the only way to trace the truth of shock and time. But one after another.

Kleo Straub should be imagined as a happy, almost child-like killer. She happily sings her chekist song (“Forward, Tschershinsky Soldiers”). It is a clear case of socialist abuse. Her grandfather, who was on the board of HVA, raised her to be a loyal killing machine for the system, believing in the superiority of socialism. The mother eventually disappeared.

Entertainment for the enemy of the class

After completing the killings in West, Kleo likes to sit in front of “Sandman” on the East’s black and white TV and mumbles at Wurzen’s Peanuts swings. This year is 1987. In the legendary West Berlin nightclub, “Big Eden,” Cleo killed a man with coke poisoning. She doesn’t know who the victim was, she never knows, she’s just supposed to kill. This is it. It’s her last assignment. she is pregnant. Then she was arrested. Because it was said to have sold the blueprints for the best VEB consumer electronics product to the class enemy.

Three years later she was released. Nothing like before. The East is wild. Capitalism is coming. Old cadres weave new networks. And Cleo – the late sister of the Count of Monte Cristo – wants to know. Want to know how it was and who.

Erinnye from Stasi prison kills her way into the supposed chain of command. Reaching the top – according to the plan of the old drama quite right in the middle of this somewhat bloody tragedy – to the bed of Comrade Milky, whom she herself brought there with a touching but poisoned sponge cake (she has a weakness for eggs), she realizes that everything was different than was expected. more complicated. This is mainly due to that damned red bag that has appeared somewhere like a Maltese hawk since Big Heaven. And whose content is said to be dangerous to the world.

The creators of 4 Blocks caused chaos for Kleo. They were not particularly interested in historical facts. For a taste of the real pop culture of the past. “Kleo” is loud, fast, weird, and dirty. Can’t get it in a box. But it tastes great. This, in turn, is due to Gila Haas. Gila Haas is Cleo. She has the whole murder case of the spy drama with her. It uses everything in it. You can go from brat to grandeza in milliseconds.

If you don’t lie down on the floor in front of her after that, you really need soup.
