Storyline

Eduard von Bittermagen and his friend Professor Pfiff, indulge in an amusing hobby. They take every opportunity to bet on anything. Their latest bet: Bittermagen claims that his nephew Tommi, a young rascal and the Professor's young daughter Julia will become a couple although the two are actually not crazy about each other. Of course, Pfiff bets against it. But then Bittermagen uses a macabre trick. He acts as if his last hour had come and summons Tommi and Julia to his "deathbed". He offers his immense heritage to both of them-if they solve a problem. The task is to find five red pillows that contain certain messages. Written by Ørnås

COMEDY FOR DUMMIES
18 May 1999 | by (Amsterdam, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

One of those terrible German farces that are just too silly and insufferable. Why does everybody have to shout all the time?; do they really think that is funny? Why must everybody behave as if they were loonies; did Franz Marischka not know that farce only works when the characters behave more or less "normal"? Is pulling faces all the time funny? And why are the boy and girl always those terribly dummies whose only aim in life seems to get engaged?

Why not a decent script? This farce is a poor (very poor) man's variation of the classic Russian tale "The 12 Chairs" by Ilf & Petrow - without recognition of that fact, of course. Here 5 pillows have to be found, but it is never clear where these come from. But why do I bother?

The title has 2 translations in English: A difficult Case and A big Blunder; I go for the latter.
