Dull, Duller, Dullest
6 February 2006 | by (Seattle, WA) – See all my reviews

This is a German film that starts off slow, confusing and dull and remains slow, confusing and dull right up to its abrupt ending. I didn't care about anyone or anything that happened during this film. There was no character development here. The plot sounded interesting enough and usually films taking place in Nazi Germany or during that time tend to be interesting. This was not interesting in the least. If you enjoy guessing at what may be going on; If you love to wait for a plot to kick in; If you easily become tempted when the DVD box describes something as a "taut psychological thriller"; If you are suffering from insomnia, then this film is recommended to you.
