Had this on video, taped from TV since over a year, just finally saw it yesterday night and got hooked. Cute, funny movie about the (sexual) relations of several people in (I think) Hamburg.
I have a tendency to like this sort of relationship, dialogue-driven movies, like Robert Altman, Short Cuts-style, and that is what this film delivers. Main character runs Alibi, a company providing excuses to spouses off cheating on their partners. Meets old school love interest and makes a bet that anyone would cheat on their partner if they knew they would get away with it. He then proceeds to win the bet by helping the unknowing target couple along in the marital escapade process.
The touch with the added story-telling of an Evita-like Che Guevara driving the story forwards is a well-executed concept. All in all, funny, interesting and made me stay up late to finish watching it. 7 out of 10.
