A very rough view on a man trying to improve "his" world.
31 August 2005 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

Once you've totally accepted that Mux is a madman you can watch this movie with a broad smile (before that I was frozen in my chair). Like the previous commenter mentioned this movie really ought to make you think.

The film starts in a way that most of the viewers can experience some sort of "bond" between them and the sympathetic character of Mux. It really takes about an hour or more into the film to realize the full weirdness that is founding Mux's motifs.

I caught myself thinking about recent events in my life and why my reaction is so close to that of the crazy armed Mux. You will see them tiny sins from a whole new point of view.

This movie is made by a cynic, it's highly sarcastic and alas it carries the saddest message I've heard being adapted from reality so far.

Don't forget to watch the deleted scenes. Some parts of the film lost their sense during the editing process. I especially recommend "Pornomonolog".
