PROMISING START, BUT THEN.........
18 March 1999 | by J. SteedSee all my reviews

This male chauvinist comedy starts promising refreshing, but as the story develops the viewer is confronted with a very trivial love story.

But Detlev Buck knows his metier and this film is far better (made) than the average German 90's comedy. Buck is supported by the very good cinematography of Idziak whose use of colour is excellent. Almost as a rule in 90's German cinema the music is no more than muzak.

Heike Makatsch almost steals the film.
