Storyline

In rural Westphalia, Franz Berger struggles to keep his inn open. On this day, a bluff, overbearing bully, Hermann Walzer, has booked the dining room for a wedding banquet for his son Mark. There's bad blood between Berger and Walzer, so when the first course, shrimp cocktail, is off, Hermann storms out with the wedding party vowing not to pay. Franz locks the loo door, taking prisoners of the bride and Hermann's wife while he also locks the estate's outer gates, leaving Hermann and the rest outside. Walzer, a pheasant hunter, lays siege; shotguns, rifles, grenades, a shovel, and other weapons leave no one safe. Will it take death to bring these men to their senses?

Clean fun
29 March 2009 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

What I like most about this movie is that it doesn't waste my precious time with a needlessly lengthy build-up. We find out who the characters are, why they hate each other, and how it could ever come to this. That's good enough for me. It takes about six seconds before the action starts, seriously. The script proves to be pretty good, there are plenty of exciting turns in the story, and the action scenes are often interrupted by some pretty intriguing character studies. Or the other way around, depending on how you look at it. I especially like the way Hermann is portrayed, kind of a clichéd villain at times, but still, could easily exist. I also enjoyed the grandpa, he doesn't really get to do much but he steals every scene he's in. Well, he does get to throw a grenade, which is always pretty awesome. There's also some comic relief involved, and it's perfectly timed in this dark tale. The only thing I didn't care for was the ending, but after 90 minutes I found it hard to be mad at this movie.
