Can jokes date?
27 September 2011 | by See all my reviews

And when I say date, then I mean "age". But puns aside, I was surprised to see the rating for this movie here. It is true the comedy might seem a bit dated now. But I really enjoyed myself watching this at the Berlin International Film Festival this year. The movie is very weird and strange and has a nice dark humor.

While it is also a fact that you can argue about what is funny, or what could make you laugh, I think that you ought to give this movie a chance. It has funny characters, a nice premise, some weird things happening and I really couldn't tell from the start where this was going to end (which is a good thing). Not a classic, but a funny little picture then
