Storyline

Due to a delayed flight a group of German flight passengers have to wait in the hall of the airport of Manila. The crowd is quite mixed, ranging from an cultivated east German teacher couple up to sleazy sex tourists. As the waiting prolongs, more and more aggressions and long repressed behaviors shed their way to the surface. Written by Moritz Muehlenhoff <jmm@inutil.org>

Big Disappointment
3 November 2000 | by (Graz, Austria) – See all my reviews

I've expected a lot from Manila, I even wanted to go to the premiere in Locarno. I thought this would have been the second best movie this year right behind the "Dancer in the Dark". Oh boy, what disappointment with both. "Manila" tries to cover the typical german character traits abroad we all know of: modesty, tolerance and cowardly. The only typical Karmakar trait is that there are still some good things in germans, as shown in the grand finale. The problem with the film is not the content per se, the content is correct, crowds of germans are truly hard to stand abroad, the problem is the quality of the film. Karmakar didn't want to realize that in his childish reaction to the Berlinale rejection. This is his first feature with a big cast and another author. The cast does grossly over-acting, the book (Bodo Kirchhoff) is over-simplifying and just bad. "Manila" is just a typical almost-province stage-drama by Bodo Kirchhoff, nothing more. We'll have to wait for the next good Karmakar, the "Himmler-Project". This has only one actor, should be manageable.
