Storyline

When dishwasher Ingo, whose girl-friend has just left him, returns a borrowed bar stool to the Folkwang Acting School in Essen, he stumbles into the audition for next year's new students. He lets Johannes, the broke and unsuccessful applicant, stay with him. Ingo decides to go to Munich with Johannes, where he wants to try his luck once again. Hitchhiking, they get rides with very different drivers on the autobahn. They meet up with the smooth-talking Ali in the wayside dinner "Raststätte Spessart". Arriving in Munich, the trio tries to find cheap sleeping accommodation. They enter Ingo into the audition at Munich acting school. Moreover, Johannes falls in love with street artist Herta from Berlin. Written by emkarpf

Roadmovie at its best !
24 December 2005 | by (Wiesbaden, Germany) – See all my reviews

This was one early work of young German director Sönke Wortmann. Many German actors appearing in this movie started their careers based on this movie, e.g. Jochen Vogel as the best known among them. This script is fantastic, fast furious, intelligent, lots of humor lots of human feelings and good portion of political incorrectness. Beautiful pictures from German autobahn to Munichs discos. Many famous lines in this movie actually became household expressions. At least any visitor of the German beer capital Munich during Oktoberfest Zeit, will find many parallel situations experienced by the films protagonists. "Only for Stammgäste" will be one of the answers Americans will have heard trying to enter one of the better meeting points, discos or private lounges in Munich. This is one of the rare films you wanna watch multiple times. Sadly, Sönke never came up with a hit like this. If you liked Quentins Pulp Fiction you gonna love this movie.
