Incredibly bad in every way
26 June 2012 | by (Antigua and Barbuda) – See all my reviews

Over the last years, there was a flood of really good German movies. Sadly, this is not one of them. In fact, quite the contrary. I can't remember the last time, I heard such idiotic, unfitting and pretentious dialog. The story itself is uninteresting, illogical and ultimately leads nowhere. Heiner Lauterbach and Max Tidof are well respected and acclaimed German actors. I don't say they are bad actors in general, but in this movie they are. As well as the other 50% of the main cast. If I could change my reality right now, I would want my wasted time for watching this back. I can't believe I really sat through the whole thing in the first place.
