I was at the premiere of "Goldene Zeiten" in Unna/Germany today. The director Peter Thorwarth has some kind of fan base in this city, because some movies (at least "Bang, Boom, Bang" and "Was nicht passt wird passend gemacht") of him play in Unna. "Goldene Zeiten" also plays in Unna.
Nevertheless the audience of this comedy was very quiet. There were only a few good laughs. A lot of scenes that were presumably meant to be funny didn't really work even for this propitious audience.
The characters of this movie were all pictured rather one-dimensional and I didn't really feel for any of them. With 130 minutes runtime this movie was at least 30 minutes too long and I was kind of bored at the end.
The two previous efforts of Peter Thorwarth ("Bang, Boom, Bang" and "Was nicht passt wird passend gemacht") were much more enjoyable for me. So I recommend to rather watch these and to skip "Goldene Zeiten".
