Very fast (typical) german more-or-less-comedy about two female "soldiers of god" in a big city
With this movie, Detlev Buck could have done a good deal - if the plot would have been worked out little more. The base story is really good: Two young attactive girls, female "soldiers of god" (kind of Salvation Army), were sent to a big city (Berlin) to support the local alms-house. But in city live they immediately were confronted with totaly new and unknown situations - especially men, but also suicides, the running gag of the movie. Unfortunately there is more plot than the movie can take. Several scenes just indicate important events, e.g. as Isolde (Heike Makatsch) was "raped" by Butsch while she's unconscious (-> Heinrich von Kleist, "Die Marquise von O...").
The movie is very fast and contains lots of events - maybe viewing a second time could bring up more subtle details. For a comedy it doesn't make you laugh enough, but it's good entertainment - 7/10 for this nice (typical) german movie.
