Did You Know?

Alternate Versions

Although the German cinema, DVD/VHS and TV versions are all rated "FSK-12", only the cinema version was uncut. All post-cinema versions were shortened or changed a few seconds that originally showed some quite shocking violence:
  • the scene showing Benno Fuehrmann's character getting shot in the head has been changed. You now see Fuehrmann falling on the ground from quite some distance. Originally you saw his face in a close up with a small entry-wound and a load of blood spattering the face of the person standing behind him.
  • when the pimp "Brilli" sets the hair of a prostitute on fire all post-cinema versions are missing a few seconds showing the shocked face of the woman and her burning head.

Worthwhile episode film, picturing the darker side of Hamburg.
27 December 2000 | by EnvyYouProductionsSee all my reviews

Sönke Worthmann usually shoots contemporary comedies - mostly highly entertaining. this time he tries successfully to change the genres. His episode film set in one of Europe's most notorious quarters shows sensitivity, sense for pace and rhythm, and genuine interest in the lives of ordinary people who live slightly off the track. An almost quiet film that could slightly change the perspective on German cinema.
