There is a Ex-Handmodel for Rolex, who wants to seduce a yuppie girl and cheat his insurance company. There is a East-German woman and her drunken artist boyfriend playing Lotto. Some satanists, who are planing a ritual with there grandmother. Two young anarchists, who are testing a new kind of Ego-economy.

About material illusions and true love. Written by English Press Release

Why did I spend so much money on the DVD?
19 September 2008 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

I was curious about the movie since having seen some scenes on the official website. And these were brilliant and promising. But after having watched 15 minutes, I wondered whether this was going to be a parody or if the exaggerated clichés were meant to be plausible. Regrettably I still do wonder. There are a few scenes which - although they were predictable like everything in the movie - made me smile, but all in all it was too shallow to be sophisticated and too lame to be funny.

This movie could have been an interesting witty portrait of different subcultures in Berlin - of goths and heavy metal-heads, of gays, of life in social housing and of the 3rd migrant generation. Leaving out the scenes presented on the website only a superficial, longish trash-TV sketch remains.
