Storyline

A series of murders eliminates the poverty-stricken heirs to a 10 million-dollar fortune while Didi Dodel, the unsuspecting main heir, blithely escapes the attempts on his life. After a wealthy miser dies and leaves his fortune to Didi and five others, the five each hit upon the idea of eliminating Didi from the list (Didi does not know he has been named), but they do not realize how fate can step in and alter the best and worst of intentions.

INDIFFERENT AND SELDOM FUNNY
12 April 1999 | by (Amsterdam, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Not as bad as the average German farce of the last 30 years, but still an indifferent, seldom really funny film, that is a kind of poor man's version of Kind Hearts and Coronets (with Alec Guinness). It is painful to see how bad most jokes are timed. The end sequence (labyrinth of mirrors) seems to be borrowed from Orson Welles' Lady from Shanghai; and as this is not used for e.g. a subtle parody, there is no excuse.
