Pitman Katlewski is fed up with his conventional life: a wife, small apartment, nice living room furniture - and DM 9150 in debt to pay for all of the former. One day at work, he walks miles underground to take another exit and decides that he won't return up through his pit and into his normal self, until he's freed himself of these bounds. He befriends the unconventional Uli, who offers him shelter. But soon he realizes that it won't be that easy to come up with the money, so he gets himself a chain saw... Written by Tom Zoerner <>

One of the greatest German comedies of the 80's!!!
11 September 2007 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

Although not produced on a high budget this is definitely one of the movies of the 80's i remember best...- and i've seen a lot since then. The story is simple, most of the cast amateurish...- it's Detlev Quandt's performance nobody should miss. He was (and still sometimes for me is) the prototype of "cool". Far ahead of time and style he carries the entire movie. Hard to describe... or possibly just charismatic. Especially if you're living in this region of Germany we call the "Ruhrgebiet" (as i do) you might like this 90-minute-piece-of-sheer-coolness because it's set here. I still love it after 26 years now and (no joke) watch it regularly, at least every 2-3 years. They're not made like this anymore....
