So this is pop literature...
7 May 2003 | by (Vienna, Austria) – See all my reviews

What I heard about this film, is that it is pretty bad, one critic even wrote that it will harm German cinema just as much as the book harmed German literature. Well, don't ask me why I went to see it in spite of this but I did.

The result is - surprise, surprise - not as bad as I believed. The movie is funnier than most other modern German comedies... well, funny is not a correct word: there's a scene, and you find it utterly stupid but nevertheless you can't help laughing. Also the movie is quite short, so there is no time to get bored. And: Nora Tschirner is really very cute.

Still, after watching this movie, I am not interested in any of Stuckrad-Barre's so-called pop books any more (because I finally know what this word means). They seem to be somewhat exhausting to read, and on the whole, the story isn't worth it.

So, I wasn't completely right regarding my prejudices. 6 out of 10.
