Based upon director Helmut Dietl's experience of trying to adapt Patrick Süskind's novel "Das Parfüm" into a movie. Uhu Zigeuner is based upon Dietl, while Jakob Windisch is based upon the author Süskind. Oscar Reiter is based upon producer 'Bernd Eichinger' who eventually would turn the novel into a film, Perfume: The Story of a Murderer (2006). See more »
This film entertains with witty dialogues and persuading intrigue. In typical German fashion, comedy is coupled with depth as well as sadness which creates an atmosphere of realism while being light and energizing. The acting is excellent, not surprisingly, as the cast consists of a great number of famous and skilled German actors including Veronica Ferres, Götz George and Mario Adorf. Careful, you may not be satisfied with your typical blockbuster movie after this. There is nothing wanting in the cinematography or soundtrack either, but all elements of this movie combine to create a convincing comedy that left me hoping for more of the same. In short, a must see or rent for all who love satires or simply want to see a really good movie.
