Storyline

In rural Westphalia, Franz Berger struggles to keep his inn open. On this day, a bluff, overbearing bully, Hermann Walzer, has booked the dining room for a wedding banquet for his son Mark. There's bad blood between Berger and Walzer, so when the first course, shrimp cocktail, is off, Hermann storms out with the wedding party vowing not to pay. Franz locks the loo door, taking prisoners of the bride and Hermann's wife while he also locks the estate's outer gates, leaving Hermann and the rest outside. Walzer, a pheasant hunter, lays siege; shotguns, rifles, grenades, a shovel, and other weapons leave no one safe. Will it take death to bring these men to their senses?

Disappointing film of great Comic
3 April 2009 | by olaf-postSee all my reviews

The comic book by Greg and Van Hamme, on which this movie is based, is the best I've ever read. Unfortunately this movie doesn't do it justice. The comic is not a black comedy but a serious story, especially the father of the groom and the main waiter in the inn are not funny at all. Also a lot of the subplots that made the comic so interesting are not in the movie. What I especially liked about the comic is the credibility of the characters and though the acting is not bad they never seem to develop. Still it's not a bad movie, but I had expected better a better product with this excellent raw material. I hope that the remake that is current in production stays closer to the original story, it certainly deserves it.
