Being from Germany, I know only very few good recent German films, and so I thought, I'd give this one a chance. I had read a few good words about it, in a TV-magazine. (generally not a good source for trustworthy movie recommendations) As some minutes passed, I was confronted with clichés, clichés, and clichés. At first I thought, it might be some kind of satire... I just could not believe, in the existence of such a unimaginative (non blockbuster) movie! I was wrong though. This movie doesn't play with clichés as for example Pulp Fiction does, it simply quotes them. The whole "pigs are like people"-thing, the ultimately boring lovestory, the fat black extroverted American woman, the parents, who won't let go of their son, the bullying schoolmates ... and so on. I have noticed though, some people enjoyed this movie. It appeals to their emotions, it is political correct, and it is very much paedagogic, which is UNFORTUNATELY symptomatic for German films.
