I have to agree on both previous reviews. It is not as bad as Onkelyogi wrote but not as good as ChrisWasser praises it. Kaiser Wilhelm is played as a total jerk, close to Helge Schneider style of acting. The classic German actors like Ferch and Möhring deliver some decent acting. But the unknown ones (like Kaiser Wilhelm and others) really bad. As the gap between them is visible so clearly, the quality of some scenes jumps from zero to hero and down again depending on the actors. The artwork is really nice so if you don't like the storyline, the picture work makes up for it. Costumes are nice, too. Some shots within the surroundings or city of Berlin would have been added some reference to the lifestyle of that time.
