Decent indie film
6 September 2003 | by See all my reviews

Even if this is slightly funny at times, i wouldn't take it neither as action nor as comedy film, for what it's worth. So, don't expect anything like it - the pace is quite slow.

Film takes place in Mannheim, a middle-sized german city and most of our 'heroes' are emigrants struggling against odds. Thankfully this is done in tasteful, light-weight and at times funny manner, rather than french-type arthouse flicks which have to take you down and depress you in order to state their 'truths' about life, without even having you like or care a bit for the characters.

This little german film, finishes almost as suddenly in started off, leaving you with a feeling, and that's the whole point. It is recommended for all people into different if a bit arty cinema.
