Excellent story and excellent actors!!!
24 October 1998 | by (Erfurt, Germany) – See all my reviews

This is an excellent film with a very, very, very nice Girl as an actor. The story is very funny and it is a kind of thinking about earlier times in Germany.

I am going to buy this film anywhere!!!
