Leander Haussmann brings us his best movie since "Herr Lehmann" with this fast and funny new comedy. He captures Hamburg with his beautiful camera-work, brings us a great performance from an old acquaintance (Maruschka Detmers) and sets the stage for the wonderful Tom Schilling, who looks much younger than his age - which is great, because you keep wondering how old this guy actually is. The references to Bob Dylan and The Graduate are fun to find and the inspired music by Element of Crime fits perfectly. I was particularly fond of the cameo by Detlev Buck. If you have enjoyed "Sonnenallee" and "Herr Lehmann" you can look forward to this one.
