Storyline

Life could be just great for bank robber Keek: His buddy Kalle is doing time for their last coup, while Keek has to retain the loot. Kalle will spend two more years in jail, so Keek is not exactly bothered by the fact that he has lost most of the money betting on horse races. But then Kalle watches a porn video 'starring' his wife and he breaks free to take revenge. Suddenly, Keek is in desperate need of cash and even the weirdest scheme seems promising.

A gangster-movie from Germany that is actually funny
7 September 1999 | by ChWasserSee all my reviews

It took a little while, but after a first attempt with KNOCKIN' ON HEAVEN'S DOOR Germany has finally caught up with the typical postmodern gangstermovie of the 90s. BANG, BOOM, BANG, Peter Thorwarth's feature film debut after two great short films, doesn't have to hide before the likes of PULP FICTION or LOCK, STOCK AND TWO SMOKING BARRELS.

A bunch of losers and small-time criminals are after the key to a large amount of money, but their plans to get it keep collliding and they all get into deeper and deeper trouble. What I really like about the main characters, is that they stay relaxed and laid back and only occasionally get fits of panic. Why worry about missing money that you owe to a hardened criminal if you still can play soccer, drive your car fast or smoke a joint ?

The music by the "H-Blockx" is good, the cinematography is OK, but the best things about the movie are the actors (down to the smallest cameo appearance) and the script with many twists and turns and a lot of quotable lines. As you might guess the language is rude and very un-PC which fits perfectly to the 'Ruhrgebiet' (Germany's industrial heart) where the film takes place.

Did I mention already that this is one of the funniest German movies ever ? Hilarious and German an oxymoron ? See BANG, BOOM, BANG and you will rethink about that notion.
