Always a pleasure to watch Moritz Bleibtreu
3 January 2006 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

This is a nice and entertaining movie, except of the austrian speaking guy who is not funny at all. I haven't seen much austrian movies and the ones I have seen all have been very boring and poor. This movie is sometimes funny, accompanied by nice music. I have seen some gangster movies so far and this one can't be compared to other so called gangster movies because there is a lack of coolness but its entertaining in some parts. If you like funny scenes and if you don't take the story too serious this might be a movie you could like. People who expect some kind of American or British gangster movies should not watch it because it got it's own style and Moritz Bleibtreu is always a pleasure to watch 7/10
