At his side: old friend Mickey. By accident Berger's young wife Sybille is killed and Walter and Mickey hide her body because they fear Berger's vengeance.

Straight reviews are for wussies. We want unique opinion as information too!
11 January 2013 | by (Santa Monica, California) – See all my reviews

"Carpathian mountains" (Donny Darko), abandoned mountain hotel in winter (The Shining), kid's bicycle indoors as prop (Fight Club), bumbling villain protagonists making dark idiotic decisions (Coen Brothers - folly in the snow: Fargo), the tone of Harry (Blue Velvet). (Albeit the Blue Velvet thing ultimately CAME from Germany - to be sure.)

Heck, that sounds like a damn good movie right there! Derivative?, sure. So what.

I'm impressed by how tightly and naturally plot points are woven in beforehand to help bring explanation and viewer participation later on. My feeling was that the movie writing/directing was being led by a man who has confidence and knows how to lead a dance. And I was VERY impressed by Detlef Bothe's short scene as Harry. I'm a non German speaking American and I didn't understand a word he was saying, and relying solely on English subtitles (my eyes darting up and down like a teenager in a strip club on speed. I watched that scene again and again for the subtleties – line delivery porn.) That brief characterization is brilliant. Frankly, putting him up front in the movie carried me through much of the movie's cold open space. It gave me faith in the production; ..in whom I was dancing with. It gave me extra "dynamic headroom" with which to work. And, overall predictability was very low. ..Bravo!

Well done German dudes!

IMDb shows a (US) 1 screen $656 dollar opening weekend. Classic! It's got to be tough for a German to sell distribution in Hollywood. (*How can that be?* The tight little battle rages on.) But thank you for licensing the movie to Netflix (Los Gatos) so Americans can have a chance to watch this very well crafted film (albeit 2 years later.) Netflix changed my world. And your movie was a fun black humorous part of that. Thanks again.
