cool daytrip in HH
23 June 2003 | by universal-soldierSee all my reviews

If you want to feel a day in the big habour City Hamburg enjoy DIE RATTE.

I just remembered DIE RATTE as a small unsuccessful movie, but there was Thomas Kretschmann who gaves later cool performances in STALINGRAD and STENDAHL SYNDROME - now here becomes a Hollywood-star in Blockbusters like U-751, BLADE2 and THE PIANIST. Now I saw DIE RATTE on a film festival for RATTE-director Klaus Lemke: Kretschmann is brilliant in really cool movie. He plays a f***ed up crook who wants to make a big deal, but his small brothers wants to spend a day with his idol - the journey begins and you meet a lot of beautiful women and bizarre guys in weird situations. Ok, ok the movie is not perfect, the story is a bit to strange, the storyline gets lost sometimes, but you mean that RATTE is authentic - believe me if you saw DIE RATTE you a few centimeter taller then before.
