Genius movie about homosexuals and cows
18 June 2010 | by See all my reviews

Don't let the first part of 'Die Bettwurst' scare you off: it's utterly boring, yes, but the second part is interesting and the ending is a work of pure genius, with over the top acting that will make you laugh as hard as you ever did and a funny scene with cows, I believe this is the only movie ever made with a scene in which cows run away in fear! it's so funny, it will make you long for a sequel, and you will have forgotten the boring first part. okay, so now the question remains: what is this movie about anyway? well, it's actually about nothing, everything is improvised by a woman who wears a different wig every time we see her and a gay individual who is trying to make out with her. yes, it's all about homosexuals, trying to be straight because they want to be 'the same as everybody else'. off course, this is my own interpretation. a lot that's important remains unsaid, but it's all about homosexuality, even if you don't get it. it's about trying to be the ideal man in our society. that makes me wonder... are we each an individual with our own thoughts or mindless sheep being led to the slaughterhouse? 'Die Bettwurst' gives you an answer. it may not be the answer you were looking for, but it's an honest approach close to the truth we're all looking for. go and see 'Die Bettwurst'. you won't regret it.
