A satire on the German film scene.
25 May 2005 | by See all my reviews

This film entertains with witty dialogues and persuading intrigue. In typical German fashion, comedy is coupled with depth as well as sadness which creates an atmosphere of realism while being light and energizing. The acting is excellent, not surprisingly, as the cast consists of a great number of famous and skilled German actors including Veronica Ferres, Götz George and Mario Adorf. Careful, you may not be satisfied with your typical blockbuster movie after this. There is nothing wanting in the cinematography or soundtrack either, but all elements of this movie combine to create a convincing comedy that left me hoping for more of the same. In short, a must see or rent for all who love satires or simply want to see a really good movie.
