Goofs

When Paul comes home for the first time, he accidentally tries to open his neighbour's door instead of his own. He walks down the stairs afterwards and opens his own door. These two doors are actually the same. The pattern on the lower marble wall is exactly the same, the name on the mail box is the same (also too short for his last name "Winkelmann"). Furthermore, the shadows on the wall and the door indicate that the shots were taken on different times of the day. See more »

German's don't do comedy... well think again
27 November 2001 | by (Luxembourg, Europe) – See all my reviews

A beer commercial in the States once said "German's don't do comedy, they do beer" Well Loriot (Vico von Bülow) proves to be the exception (and sad to say to ONLY exception). As a die-hard Loriot-fan I may have a biased point of view, but Loriot's 1 - 2 punch with "Ödipussi" and "Pappa ante portas" are the best German comedy movies ever.

Loriot's humor is at times very dry, but being so very hilarious. If you think about making fun of subtle German stereotypes (being organised for example) you will understand Loriot's approach to humor and will be hit full-force by the effect. Sadly if you do not master German you will loose a lot of it.

A must have for every comedy fan.
