Wow, another good German movie!
17 August 2010 | by kneiss1See all my reviews

Usually I am no fan of German movies. Most movies that come out of my country are "conservative" and boring. This movie suffers a bit from this disease as well. The whole plot could have been told more drastic and more touching. For a German movie though, it was quite emotional with mostly great music and a great atmosphere. Acting was far above other German movies. (Which doesn't exactly make it great.) Especially Uwe Ochsenknecht and the main actor Max Riemelt have been impressive. The language rocked. (I can only speak about the original version here.) I really liked the how the story was told. Only a few sentences felt a bit weird and misplaced.

A great movie, a bit too optimistic for me, but very unusual and entertaining.
