I had to see this movie for my German Film/Media class. I enjoyed watching it. I certainly laughed a lot. When it comes down to it, this movie is about what men think about women. As Julius and Stefan become friends, they constantly talk and complain about women. But neither of them can stay away from them. This only means one thing. No matter what men say about women, they just can't stay away from them.
My favorite character in this movie is Julius, the husband that comes up with a really fantastic plan to get his wife back from the unemployed artist, Stefan, a man his wife is having an affair with. He is determined to find out what his wife sees in this man. As he develops a close friendship with Stefan, Julius manages to turn him into an image of Julius himself. An image his wife does not find very attractive. I think this plan is very unusual, but very good and very funny. It's what makes this movie very interesting.
Definitely worth watching. Very funny. Very interesting. I highly recommend it!!
