One of the funniest silence movies ever
22 October 2005 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

I've really enjoyed this movie. It's one of the funniest movies I've ever seen. The characters, though highly stereotypical, are of a refreshing simplicity. Even for a silence movie I found the acting style somewhat exaggerated but that was no lack at all. Instead, the exaggerated acting was extraordinary funny. The fact that both of Kohlhiesels daughters were played by the same actress (something one of the other comment writers mentioned above) might suggest that the differences between those characters (like behavior and looks) were only of a superficial, transient nature. This somehow questions how we assess people in general, because the characteristics and traits we judge them on may easily change.
