Two young men, Martin Brest (Til Schweiger) and Rudi Wurlitzer (Jan Josef Liefers), both suffering from terminal cancer, get to know each other in a hospital room. They drown their desperation in tequila and decide to take one last trip to the sea. Drunk, and still in pajamas, they steal the first fancy car they find, a 1960s Mercedes convertible. The car happens to belong to a bunch of gangsters, who immediately start to chase it, since it contains more than the pistol Martin finds in the glove box.Written by

I really love this movie. This is sad, funny and surprising in one. The only good German movie after that was the live of the others (2008) and now there are just bad RomComs or TV-Dramas... This is very sad because Til Schweiger shows in this movie that he is able to performe a good character. Jan Josef Liefers is a actor who can be awesome if he want. In this movie he show it, in the movies after this not any more... One of the best things in this movie is that it never become ridiculous and don't get to sadly. At least I want say that the age of the good German movies is definitely over, and I find that really sadly because with that movies the Germans had shown that they have the chance to do good Movies. So all in all is this in my opinion the best movie since the tin drum.
