Trivia

The German dubbed version differs from the usual dubbing of foreign films. In this movie they use the German "Herr" instead of "Mister" and the German currency (then "D-Mark") instead of US currency (when Christian Slater hires a room). See more »

My advice - watch it a second time
10 October 2006 | by See all my reviews

I saw it on one of the arts channels 2 days in a row last year and was surprised at how much better it was the second time. It's an unusual movie, to be sure, the type that doesn't make a ton of money but it IS a good film. It has good direction, good characters and a good cast. You don['t walk away feeling like you've been hit in the face with a ton of bricks. Its much more subtle than that. And it doesn't take a great stretch of the imagination to realize that this is a slightly different version of the last 3 days in the life of Jesus. I'm serious. Watch it again with this idea in mind and watch all the pieces fall together. I'm by no means a religious person and this is not a religious movie but the parallels are there. Like I said, watch it again, its worth your time.
