very original, on times funny
26 January 2003 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This movie has a very original story line. It starts out with a computer hacker on the point of making a very good deal, but because of the (accidental?) death of his girlfriend he flees, to end up in Cologne. There he lives in other peoples homes, at the times they are out. Especially that part, where the relationship between him and the home owners is being told, is very nicely done. During the movie he gets to communicate with them, in very different ways, and interferes with there lifes. He starts to run a part of theirs. Also the characters of those people are greatly done.
