It's hard to criticize this film without giving away too much, but I'll do my best. First of all, don't expect a comedy, or anything too similar to Stermann & Grissemann's Stand- Ups. There are a few chuckles here and there, but as it moves along it becomes darker and more and more serious. It's not funny enough to be a comedy, it's not exciting enough to be a thriller. Disappointingly it has no moral or deeper meaning whatsoever (at least I couldn't think of one). I left the theater asking myself "So what?" and I think this movie has the same problem "Die Fetten Jahre sind vorbei" has: The premise is original and pretty interesting, but it seems as if the writers themselves lost interest halfway into the story and decided to stick with some uninspired ending and call it a day. I don't feel like I've wasted too much money on this one, but if you have the choice: Rent "Indien" again.
