Really bad
4 August 2007 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

This movie contains all the ingredients that make up a perfect film by Claude Chabrol: murder and intrigue unfolding behind the facades of the bourgeoisie. Too bad, it was directed by Michael Verhoeven.

The story lacks irony and tempo. It drags on with only a few compelling scenes. What could have been a German variation on Chabrol's malicious little dramas, turns out to be a hollow nut.

The inept golfer played by Friedrich von Thun stands emblematically for the entire project: Verhoeven sees the target, but fails miserably in delivering the desired result.

Plus: Mario Adorf gives his usual stiff performance. He must be suffering from a severe paralysis of his facial muscles. Qualtinger and Flickenschildt's charisma is not enough to save this disaster movie.
