Nice little underrated movie
3 August 2013 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

When it came out, it completely went by me and I just got a hold of it a couple of years later. Even after re-watching it recently, I felt it was a nice little movie. Wotan who's in the lead role (and he isn't often enough considering he's much better at it than some other A-Listers in Germany), has the charisma to lead the movie. Even Dirk Benedict who has a very extended cameo playing himself, but as someone else, is really funny.

Many say this isn't the funniest movie the director made and this may be true (there is a lot of dark moments in there too that might take away some of the fun for some people), but I like the way he mixed it up. You can never be too sure about the outcome, when there are variables that you can not connect. Some characters might act strange, but that always happens. One of the better comedies to come out of Germany in the last 10 years.
