Coherent and good
8 March 2013 | by See all my reviews

It had been quite a while since I last saw a good German comedy movie. And this one really hit it's marks. If I had to think of one thing, that might not be completely up to the task, it'd be the casting of the female lead. While Jasmin is a pretty woman and one that seems to pop up in most (if not all) the major German movies in the last years, she's not the most convincing in the acting department.

But that is nit-picking, same would ring true for criticizing the movie, for not having a heavier and meatier part on the woman side. But it is true of course, that the movie does concentrate on the male cast. The way it is written though makes you appreciate it! The roles are defined and no scene is unnecessary. Either funny and developing the character(s) or continuing the story further down the road. Wotan is the lead and it refreshingly seeing him given the opportunity to act the way he can. One of the better movies to come out of Germany in the recent years
