5 out of 10
18 June 2000 | by (Cologne, Germany) – See all my reviews

At times very funny, insightful, charming and entertaining, otherwise lengthy, boring and highly clichéd this romantic comedy is one of the best of its kind out of Germany. The uneven script as well as the direction are somewhat redeemed by the good performances by charming brother-sister couple Katja Riemann and Kai Wiesinger as well as a superior comedy turn by Moritz Bleibtreu as Wiesinger's stupid gay lover. Starts promising, has its ups and downs, but ends satisfyingly.
