One wonders whether Mediolana is showing its disapproval of Lenin or its approval of dinosaurs in highlighting this story. It’s strange how often we seem to see dinosaurs in films and TV programs. I believe the 4th Jurassic Park film is coming out next year. Doing a quick internet search on the topic it seems there have been at least 10 films on Lenin, but how many people could name a single one? Although moving on from Lenin may be good catharsis for some nations, I do think dinosaurs are a bit low-brow, whilst Lenin is high-brow
Good Bye, Lenin! is one of the better films this century, though the first part of the headline is a reference to a track from the 1983 Police album, Synchronicity: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eczOimsS9GY
Oh I see! I missed both references (to the Police track with a dinosaur video + the Good Bye, Lenin film) which you make in your title. Sorry, not up to speed with popular culture
