Beautiful and moving modern version!
30 March 2009 | by jannispetersenSee all my reviews

I didn't know what to expect of the filmatisation of the well-known German novel Vorstadtkrokodile. What I actually can remember is that when I read this novel as a child, I back then thought of, it would be great as a movie. So when I saw this movie is in the cinemas, I had to watch it. And I'm very glad to have done so! First of all the cast is great! Axel Stein does a really great job and also Semmelrogge is very funny in his short scene. I didn't know any of the youngsters, but all of them played their part very well - you instantly buy their roles the way they play them! And then there is the modernization of the context. Enormeausly well-done! Many nice gags, where I laughed out loud! This is a movie for everyone: the youngsters, young adults (like me, I'm in the middle of my twenties) and the elder generation! I hope you have read the novel, but if you haven't, I'm sure you are eager to do, after you watched this fantastic movie.

Heck! I even caught myself gladly smiling at the very end!
