Berlin 2011 Review: Mein Bester Fiend (My Best Enemy)

17 February 2011 2:28 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Rating: 2.5 out of 5 stars

I fear Mein Bester Feind (My Best Enemy), which screened out of competition at Berlinale, is one for the German crowd only. The World War Two farce/body swap comedy/holocaust movie passed me by almost completely, looking camp, silly and seeming in slightly poor taste. A German-speaking friend explained to me that a lot of the jokes were very geared towards a home crowd, culturally and in terms of language. This, I suppose, will have to do as an explanation for the huge belly-laughs it generated for most of the audience. Well that, or chronic sense of humour failure on my part.

The central premise is complicated: a pair of Austrian best friends – one of whom is a Jew – are turned against each other by the 1938 annexing of Austria and the outbreak of the Second World War. It’s a set-up reminiscent I suppose of »
