Great potential, but wasted
8 February 2002 | by GMTMasterSee all my reviews

The true story of the two brothers living and dying in the Berlin 30 doesn't grab you at all - unfortunately. So much money for nothing, I mean the budget. The music seems to be stolen from "Once upon the time in America", the director, well he is known for tv movies... Good enough for VHS or DVD
