Great actor Bruno Ganz in at once serious and humorous movie.
This movie is both serious and humorous and it's worth seeing alone for the superb acting of Bruno Ganz. He's just so watchable and has an amazing way to deliver his lines. It also has one of the most scary and brilliant endings I know. It makes the movie continue in your head after the credits roll.
