Actually as I just realized and seeing here on IMDb, it's a remake too. Well I haven't seen the original movie from the fifties, so I can't judge it by the standard the original set. I can only say, that this comedy is as dark as a dark comedy can be! I didn't even know that the director was responsible for Taxi 2-4 (a user here commented on this), but that doesn't change my feelings for this movie. I loved it, when I watched it a German Festival.
The pacing is great, I loved the acting, the story is straightforward, without any minute to take a breath and or think about (plot holes or other minor story miss-happenings). It's the kind of movie, you can have a lot of fun with, if you allow yourself to, and of course, if you do like the kind of humor it portrays!
