pure surrealism!!!
20 September 2003 | by g-m-schaefer-mySee all my reviews

The German-comedy-"star" Helge Schneider in his third entrance in cinemas! When I first saw this movie when I was in the 7th grade, probably 13/14 years old, I thougt it to be awful. I recognized the meaning, or let's say non-meaning of this movie first when I saw it a second time many years later: if you get involved in the strange kind of Helge's humor, it's extremely funny, but I understand people who are not able to laugh about it.

The whole movie, for example the strange characters (Helmut Körschgen: a perfect actor or always drunken?)and locations, gives me the impression of being a crazy, surrealistic dream, arised from the mind of the genius Helge Schneider.

If you like a different kind of humor,strange and weird (and drunken) characters, look for "00 Schneider" and the other Helge-movies, especially his debut, the amazing "Johnny Flash"!

Try to watch all four one after another: an unforgettable experience!!!
