High quality murder mystery with outstanding Josef Hader
Can you understand Austrians? Can you understand Germans? Well, I'm a German and I have problems to understand the Vienna dialect presented in this great murder mystery. But reading the subtitles you hopefully understand the all black humor behind it and the joy the actors take from it. And it's such a terribly suspenseful storyline! Well, I did not only laugh out loud many times, I really learned something of my neighbor country which I usually perceive to be so similar to us Germans, but indeed now I better understand that there are not only small differences, they are really originals themselves and this was a great lesson to learn.
Next to great actors I would like to point out that "Sofa Surfers" provided an extremely useful soundtrack to increase the suspense. This cooperation was used again for the new movie Silentium, the new murder mystery written by author Wolf Haas. This one is even darker than "Komm,süsser Tod" (translates something like "Come, sweet death" -J.S. Bach Choral) and I would warn the audience if they have problems to deal with the realism in this one already - it may not be a lot of fun for you then....it might be your next nightmare!
