...because they see a great movie (On connaît la chanson - Alain Resnais) and think they'll have to do a German version (clandestine of course - they would never mention they're ripping it off) producing an insanely lousy, snail-paced and boring film with boring acting. Somehow practically all actors got the idea they're supposed to say their lines in this fake stuttering way so as to draw out the already drawn out scenes even more. One really sits there and hopes that at least the actors would talk a bit faster to get some life onto the screen. Jan Henrik Stahlberg does this boy thing trying to look cute, but, alas, at best he looks out of place - as if the only thought he has in his mind is, let's get out of here quickly. Then there is Alexandra Neldel, she's the 'ingenue' in this film. Well, she's trying as hard to be the German sweetheart as Stahlberg is trying to be cute, it's not working though.
All the faults of course lie in the writer-director's hands. Terrible script, terrible mis-en-scene, no pacing, none, OK, if uninspiring cinematography.
