Great Comedy !
19 April 2007 | by (Luxembourg) – See all my reviews

A really entertaining movie, I had a lot of laughs. Some quotes really make you laugh out loud. The plot is about a 30 year old salesman who is frustrated being solo since his girlfriend left him. Besides that he cannot pay his bills and hates his job. It's a typical story about love, friends and money but for a German movie it's untypical funny! A mix between true and clever jokes & silly slapstick keeps you smiling and focused on the movie. Oliver Pocher's performance is mostly very good but he isn't a great actor for the really sad moments. When his girlfriend tells him it's over he still seems smiling. On the other hand, I loved the frustrated, angry & desperate side of his role. If you know the German language or if it will be translated, don't miss this movie !
