His pitiful life changes when he gets to know the experienced Christiane. In the meantime, Michael meets Annabelle, the love of his youth, again...Written by
In the scene where Christiane is waiting for Bruno's phone call in her apartment, the doorstep onto the balcony is clearly visible. A few moments later when she rolls outside in her wheelchair it has been replaced with a ramp. See more »
I do love Brazilian dancing. Because Brazil is full of energy.
F***ing Brazil is full of mindless fanatics, obsessed with soccer and motor-racing. We could go to Brazil together, Katja. We could drive through the favelas in an armored minibus and look at little 8-year old killers and little whores dying of AIDS at 13. Later we can hang out at the beach with filthy-rich drug dealers and pimps.

There are two screens of text at the end the film and before the credits appear.
"About 45 years ago, the scientific community recognised that there was an elementary connection between striving for monopolies, dominance and resulting conflicts such as war, and sexual aggression."
"Michael Djerzinsky was awarded the Nobel Prize for his alternative concept for the reproduction of humankind.
His half-brother, Bruno spent the rest of his life in a psychiatric clinic.
I wasn't expecting much of this film, even knowing what's it about. I was surprised how cleverly it was made. The main themes of this film are sex and love. Though there was a lot of profanity, everything fit perfectly. It's not one of those films where is a lot of unnecessary profanity just to shock audience. Another good thing about this film is, that it's characters always talk openly with each other, so you get to know them in a very short time and even start to like them. Actually this is a sad story, but I found this movie being optimistic sometimes. It's well filmed and there are many good German actors in this film. There were many unexpected twist, even the ending was not like I expected. It's interesting, funny, shocking and really worth your time.
