Complete trash
24 November 2016 | by See all my reviews

This movie is a parody of the real-life story of Thomas G. Hornauer, who got quite rich with phone sex hotlines and then decided to open a "spiritual TV channel" to suck up even more money from gullible viewers. His bizarre ramblings became pretty popular in the German corner of the Internet and ultimately inspired the creation of this movie.

Of course, this is complete low-budget trash that for some inconceivable reason some quite famous German actors agreed to star in. It is fun to watch, but you're going to miss out on a lot if you're not familiar with the stuff that inspired it.
