I saw this movie 3 years ago on a plane. It was irresistibly funny, full of irony and laughs. Most important, it was fast, dynamic, it never bored me.
I think there are many factors contributing to the impression of a film: the place you saw it, your expectation, the price it was paid, etc. That's why is impossible to have all good reviews. However this movie is underrated, people have mistreated it because it's German, it didn't receive enough attention (like most European movies) and there is no marketing for the digital version (DVD, download, etc). However, this movie won-t get you bored for an instant, thus it's a gooood movie. Technically speaking, the authors have done a good job, photography was OK, and editing good. Of course, it's not a mega production, but I would like to have 10 movies like this rather than a Hollywood mega production tuned to sell politically correct stuff. Beside all, the script of this move (based on a book), is original, while most other overwhelming titles have repetitive ideas: the dumb discovering his moral, the single discovering love, the marriage as a monogamous promise.
Watch this movie, it's worth 7-8 stars.
