Worthwhile episode film, picturing the darker side of Hamburg.
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.
