Visually stunning. Fantastic score.
1 January 2014 | by (Galway, Ireland) – See all my reviews

This movie is in German. I don't have much German but its irrelevant.

The visualizations in this movie capture you from the opening sequence to the close of the movie.

The music chosen for each scene is made up of well known tunes.

The tone of the movie, although quite dark, is accentuated both by the music & the visuals.

The only negative is that it meanders along quite slowly. This is on purpose so that the audience can grasp all the comical & curious notes laid out in each scene.

Well worth a watch, even if you don't understand German.
