Storyline

Pupil Tobias is a big Beatles fan. He knows everything about his favourite group. All the pieces of trivia he has collected seem to be pieces of a puzzle which lead to the only possible conclusion: Paul McCartney has died early and was replaced with a double by the band's management. Now Tobias has to communicate his findings. Written by Oliver Heidelbach

Excellent
9 December 2000 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

I was really impressed by this movie.

The key actors were marvelous, the directing was either sharp or light when needed and the writing really imaginative. I especially enjoyed all those little touches of 1980's Germany.

Excellent 'nuff said. If you haven't seen it yet go watch it.
