The Cream of the Crop!
25 April 2006 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

10 out of 10 - and that's basically all to say about it!

The most authentic movie about Hamburg in 1970's - Rock'n'roll, sex, drugs, 1970's lifestyle, 1970's hairstyle, murder, prostitution, Santana, bikers, Reeperbahn, and St. Pauli provide the basis for the story featuring Gerd and Modschiedler, the ill-assorted couple (if at all amateur actors, who act themselves) of this fantastic movie.

The most outstanding characteristic is the idiom of the 1970's - as a German native speaker you will have lots of fun watching this movie. From my perspective the funny but very authentic dialogs are the key highlights - not only of the movie but also of the 1970's.
