Trivia

When the Film was produced, the real 01-83-02 was under contract with the Malteser Hilfsdienst gGmbH (Order of Malta). The regular Staff was consulted by production crew and is mentioned in the credits. Every second year the Cologne Fire Brigade sets out a new contract for the different ambulances. See more »

Goofs

The Pschyrembel on the Doc's desk in the Retrospective of Crash is the newest version from 2003. So it can't be there when Crash was a young boy. See more »

This is a near perfect film
18 May 2007 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

Hoelzemann might have a great future as a German film maker. The plot is subtle, the dialogs witty and understated, the acting, in particular by Schweighoefer and Kremp, great. Schweighoefer is a charismatic actor on who this film is built – my wife commented that his presence reminded her of James Dean. To me the psychology of the human relations was more important than the actions – the opposite of how Hollywood movies usually proceed. The scene with the suicidal girl on the roof – the Cologne cathedral in the background – is a game of life and death that keeps you breathless. Were it not for some sentimental, heavy scenes (in particular between November and Crash), I would rate it 10.
