Jasna Fritzi Bauer,
This German version of L'Auberge Espagnole has nothing of the charm and characterbuilding of it's french counterpart. None of the characters seem interesting, but maybe this is because we don't get a chance to really get to now them. The film is full of conversations but they really lead nowhere.... and this wasn't the intention, believe me ! This is like good times, bad times; with a younger(but not more interesting) cast.
The film is set in Berlin, hottest town in Europe (read the mags !), but not that you would notice: a missed chance ! The photography and direction is exceptionally bland and misses all creativity!
Music is fun though, you don't hear German krautrock all the time...
