Insane but oddly amusing
25 January 2009 | by marc242See all my reviews

I just watched this piece of "entertainment", and I must say it is one of the most bewildering movies ever. Technically its inept film-making at its worst. The Actors are obviously laymen, and do not know a single thing about acting. The camera-work is equally horrible, sometimes the camera is totally out of focus, at other times the camera just lingers for (seemingly) hours on the same scene without any cuts. Its like a glorified home movie really. The dialog is mostly mundane and nonsensical, the actors just seem to improvise their lines on the spot. But its really hilarious, the crazy 70s fashion, the wigs and the disgusting interior set decoration (Luzi Kryn's apartment) really sell the movie. But please be advised: This is definitely not your usual movie entertainment. Its crazy,amateurish and tasteless. A real treat for trash fans, but sometimes it's so incoherent, that it becomes extremely boring after a while. I can't really recommend this, but if you are interested in truly bizarre film-making, then this is a film for you.
