Eins within a space and a wearywide space it was er wohnend a Mookse...

This actually a sentence of the novel from James Joyce. You see that it is very easy to read - well, that was only a joke...this novel is gruesome, but I like it best. Last week I´ve seen this movie, and I was very suprised. It´s sometimes quiet good (short plot- discription: The story of a Irish tavern- keeper who dreams of attending his own wake)- Sounds difficult, he?- Yeah, and so it is...This isn´t a great movie, but after that novel you must say, there are few people who could make it better (maybe Tim Burton)
