Trivia

In 2015, Subkultur Entertainment started a crowdfunding campaign via Kickstarter to restore the film which was successful. During the restoration it was discovered that the soundtrack was longer than the film itself. This resulted in raiding the vaults at the production company Lisa Film. There, a film reel was discovered which contained scenes cut to obtain a rating from the FSK. In the end, the original director's cut was restored in 4K resolution. See more »

Alternate Versions

German theatrical version was cut to secure a "Not under 18" rating. Only in 2017 the uncut version was released on DVD/Blu-ray. See more »

Blood and Guts
13 April 2008 | by wes-connorsSee all my reviews

Indigestive red-head Raimund Harmstorf (as Heinz) persuades blue-eyed hunk Amadeus August (as Christian) to join himself and studly pal Gianni Macchia (as Luigi) in order to rob a Munich bank. Things don't go exactly as planned (wouldn't you know it); and, the heist turns into a hostage situation. "Bloody Friday" offers plenty of gratuitous violence, which must have been considerably more shocking in its day. A couple of the hostages contrast interestingly with foul-mouthed Harmstorf: Ernst Hilbich (as Ernst) clearly wants to be one of the boys, and Daniela Giordano (as Dagmar) wants nothing to do with men (she's a Lesbian). Some of the performances are all right; but, the actors are wasted in this bizarre, exploitive, and dated production.
