Great humor (but unfortunately not for everybody)
6 December 2000 | by (Giessen, Germany) – See all my reviews

It's a great satire but hard to understand if you didn't grow up in Germany. Most of the jokes are based on the very special humor and talent of Hape Kerkeling, that's why I think a translation wouldn't work.

Anyhow, I know people who didn't like the movie but most of them just didn't understand the subtle jokes. Every time I see the movie again there's another revelation...

Did you notice the "Bollerwagen"-shop next to the "Gluecksmelodie"-machine when he passes it for the second time? It's stuff like that which makes the movie still interesting to watch - even after the 10th time...
