This is no "Wer früher stirbt...
22 January 2007 | by (Munich, Germany) – See all my reviews

This is no "Wer früher stirbt, ist länger tot", director Rosenmüller's last and very prominent work. "Schwere Jungs" is visibly a low-budget production driven by excellent character work. It's strength lies in the actors and the quaint fifties setting of upper Bavaria. If there are flaws, then they stem from the attempt to cram some 6 or so sub-plots into a movie already laden with storyline. To keep it all together, Rosenmüller had to invent cross-connections between characters and motivations that strain credibility. Another minus are the fake Bavarian accents some of the actors come up with. It's good to have quality talent on-screen, but couldn't they have found some native Bavarians?
