Storyline

The life of a Jazzplayer: Teddy Schu (Helge Schneider) loves Jazz and plays nightly in a small pub with his two friends. Sadly, there is no audience and the owner can't pay them anything for their music. Hence Teddy has to work 3 jobs to satisfy his grumpy wife. In the evenings he always finds a minute to sit with a homeless and nameless friend underneath the bridge and wonder about life and the legendary Jazz player Earl Mobileh. Jazz meets Dada!

the best film in the career of helge schneider
20 May 2004 | by See all my reviews

i think this film is schneiders best. it is not just silly German comedy like the earlier movies (texas, 00Schneider or Praxis Dr.Haselbein). The first time schneider ads critical and dramatic peaces to his work and there is also for the first time a real story which is also timed properly.

an other interesting point is that the female parts are played by real women and not in the Monty python-way by men and fat transsexuals. this picture is also photographed much better then the earlier pics. to make it short: the first real masterpiece of mr.helge schneider. he brings really new parts and sights into the new German cinema and of course in the kind of German humor which was not always a very good one. i am wondering what will come next.
