For 'ordinary' people not knowing Helge Schneider, this movie might be a short trip (and wasted money, too) - because the genuine weirdness of Doc Snyder, as the whole movie, is definitely not mainstream. There is no mass-compatible acting, no stunt-action, no easy-to-follow continuity... but that definitely doesn't matter - the whole experience turns out to be so absolutely weird, you can't describe that with a few words. The situations are all that make this thing different; strange places and settings perceived as perfect everyday life (like going out for dinner in a saloon that has nothing but italian food on the menu...); actions that are at least absurd (standing in a forest with a NON-cordless telephone and actually calling home!)... All these obvious "mistakes" are exaggerated to the maximum. So please do not compare Helge Schneider with Spielberg - that would be art vs. commerce.
