nice little german movie, one of best regarding the last years
20 August 2003 | by (germany) – See all my reviews

i was lucky to catch a sneak-preview of "liegen lernen" in a cinema in cologne, to be honest, i am not one of those german guys/girls, that love every movie made in our country, i really hate most productions, german movies suck ... so when i saw, that a german movie was on the screen when i joined the sneak, i was like "lets run away and get some drinks instead of wasting our time in here", but luckily, i did NOT do this...

The movie itself was very entertaining and in parts funny, but it had some real sensitive moments as well.

i dont want to write anything about the plot, go see it yourself, its worth it!

7.5/10 ( gave it 8 in rating system )
