Bernd Eichinger is the most popular and successful movie producer in Germany, and this movie features also the still most popular german actor, Til Schweiger.
The script seems to be a little like a Duerrenmatt book. But not one of the thrillers, more these typical german, overly intellectual and philosophical stories. You are nearly always a little bored by it and in the end you are just wondering what it wanted to tell you.
I've simply no idea what this one is good for. The acting of Til is of course very well, but the story leads just nowhere. There is some slapstick in it, but this movie isn't a funny one. Instead, it's very dark. But its also not really melancholic, or such. Its just dangerous in some way.
Maybe this movie would be excellent for people which like the described kind of books but I like neither these books nor this movie.
