It's a copy - but a good one
24 January 2013 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

As a big fan of Dustin Hoffman's and of "Tootsie," my first thought was, of course, that this was a rehash with the same basic plot, just in a different language. All similarities aside (and you may judge for yourself whether it's a good or a bad "remake"), I have to say one thing that puts this movie far above all other "men in drag" movies: Even while I was fully aware at all times that I was looking at a man pretending to be a woman, this is the only film that ever convinced me that nobody around him would see through the disguise. Matthias Schweighöfer seemed perfectly at ease in high heels and never looked like Curtis and Lemmon in "Some Like It Hot" or Hoffman in "Tootsie" or Williams in "Mrs. Doubtfire" -- he WAS a woman on screen, and he could have played the role of a woman from the beginning to the end AS a woman, without anybody in the audience realizing he's a man (unless you know him or read the credits). In this sense, this movie should be the benchmark for all future films of this kind.
