The murderous question who slept with whom
2 December 2006 | by (Las Vegas) – See all my reviews

I found this delightful DVD by chance. Sexy, witty and at the same time a hilarious comedy, Rossini - or the murderous question who slept with whom, takes us in a fashionable Italian restaurant in Munich, Germany. Every night this restaurant is the meeting point for the rich and beautiful of this city. Businesses are negotiated, contracts signed, love affairs started or ended, egos pampered, remedies for lack of potency exchanged and careers initiated or finished. There are many subplots but all more or less are connected to the fact that a producer and a director are trying to get the funding and the rights to make a movie of the book by a famous novelist, who is very publicity shy. The book is about the legendary German legend Lorelei, a beautiful young girl, who sat on a rock at the river Rhine at a particularly dangerous bend and lured ships in their demise with her singing. Very much like the sirens in Greek mythology.

They do a lot of casting calls but cannot find the right person. When she finally appears at the Rossini restaurant by accident, she creates a lot of uproar and confusion. In this movie everybody nearly sleeps with everybody and it depicts very much the life of the people in the film industry and the fringe industries. But all this sleeping around proves to be fatal for one person at the end, despite the fact that everybody always pretends that it is okay. The cast is comprised by top German actors and due to the fact that the restaurant is the main film location, the film has nearly a theatrical feeling. I highly recommend the film, if you have a chance to get your hands on it. You will be amused and perfectly entertained.
