Better than expected!
26 January 2003 | by (Bavaria, Germany) – See all my reviews

I went into this movie knowing it was good. But it was better! It is a movie for children as well as their parents.

Everything in it is brilliant. Let's start with the acting. Sebastian Koch as the Nichtraucher (non-smoker) and Ulrich Noethen as Iustus are perfect in their roles. Especially Sebastian Koch is very convincing. The child-actors do a very good job and the rest of the cast is also perfect, not to mention the very funny Piet Klocke as Professor Kreuzkamm.

The screenplay is very good, the writers succeeded in eliminating all clichés. They did not simply turn Erich Kästners bestseller into a very good movie, the matter was also updated to fit in our time. Germany's unification is now part of the storyline of two characters in the movie.

Camera and direction is above average and give the movie a good look.

I enjoyed the movie, and so will you. Go and see it.
