a mediocre movie due to a weak script
13 November 2000 | by andre-71See all my reviews

I liked some parts of the film, such as the realistic portrayal of todays East German life in a small town. But the story was just a little too straight - no surprises, no tension. Some real life problems were addressed, but mostly in a very chlichéed way. Interestingly, the element of complete nudity has only been used on a male actor, which was kind of surprising to me. But apart from the fairly good acting I consider this movie as rather mediocre. Obviously, the director only tried to practise standard techniques - hopefully for a better second movie.
