Trivia

Narrator Egon Hoegen is very well known in Germany as the voice of the education series Der 7. Sinn (1966) which gives tips for correct behavior in road traffic. By using this voice at the beginning, it gives the feeling of an authentic safety video for people raised in Germany. See also trivia for Starship Troopers (1997). See more »

Just to add something.....
14 September 2004 | by (Coburg, Germany) – See all my reviews

I think my forewriters did a good job on describing the film and why its fascinating or a bit disturbing despite of ones taste when it comes to movies. But i just felt like adding something, I think most of you don't know, well when your living in England or the USA u can hardly know. But the voice Explaining klaus mistakes is actually the original voice from an old TV show which was shown about 12 years ago in Germany called "Der siebte Sinn" ( more or less literally : The seventh sense). which was quite like this movie, well except the gore, there where a bunch of episodes showing how to use a Car safely or a Motorcylce also some Industry stuff but it was quite famous because it was running on public television. So I guess its a bit more of a laugh for Germans because everyone who owns a TV HAS seen this show at least one time....
