Goofs

When Paul comes home for the first time, he accidentally tries to open his neighbour's door instead of his own. He walks down the stairs afterwards and opens his own door. These two doors are actually the same. The pattern on the lower marble wall is exactly the same, the name on the mail box is the same (also too short for his last name "Winkelmann"). Furthermore, the shadows on the wall and the door indicate that the shots were taken on different times of the day. See more »

Wunderbar.
11 March 2014 | by piederaSee all my reviews

I watched this movie for about the tenth time tonight. Loriot was an absolute genius who found a worthy counterpart in Evelyn Hamann. May they both rest in peace. Their brilliant observations of postwar Western-German society shall live forever! I am going to kill you if there is violet around, by the way. Well then, what else is there to say to meet the comment requirements? At least that I would like to be such an exact observer as Loriot used to be. I am trying. And shouldn't we all try to hit the can somewhere in our life? Maybe it would do us some good. And now IMDb keeps asking me to write more words. OK, so let us keep roaming in our thoughts . Would it not be good if we all had a closer look at what is going on around us? I mean, should we rather not talk to our neighbour instead of looking at the greater context? I do not have many more things to say about this movie but I keep on writing for I have to write a minimum of ten lines here to get my review published. This is indeed rather annoying for I do not claim to be a comedian.
