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 »

One of the best things that ever happened to German cinema!
26 November 2000 | by (Cologne, Germany) – See all my reviews

One of the few real must-sees in German film. A sublimely funny and exceedingly well observed presentation of human behaviour in general and "typical German" flaws in particular. Loriot (von Buelow) mercilessly exposes the ridiculous pretence of chronically insecure people desperately trying to appear cool and urbane. Every time I watch this film I get some new tiny detail that sends me into hysterical laughing fits. Watch out for the kick-the-can failures, the sweater struggle and candle cat or the poem designed to impress in Milan: "… so klein und gruen, wie Sie und ich" – true art! (Plus homophile bonus: a hilarious Styrofoam version of Julie Andrews' great "Jazz Hot" appearance in "Victor/Victoria".) If you want to see how life is like in the average inhibition hell and would like to have some serious fun , try to get hold of a copy and don't miss it!
