Not a dream
9 June 2009 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

It's kind of ironic, that a movie that is Anti-Mainstream and/or Hollywood, does debut on the Berlinale. Unfortunately the pacing is way off here. The actors start to be annoying, which isn't good, even if it was a bit intentional. Some story point/jokes only work for German audiences, which on the one hand is nice, but on the other hand, is pretty short sighted for a movie, that should/could appeal to an international audience.

The movie starts off good though and it wins over audience members, with it's thin-layered, but fun characters. Unfortunately the plot starts to crumble and the pace isn't up to speed (no pun intended) too. Some ideas that are hinted aren't well executed and the overall feeling is that you have been watching a movie that was made "on the fly" (made up as it moves along, with no real script existing, except from some major plot points). A shame then, that this nice idea get's crumbled under many things that went wrong ... but at least the crew seems to had fun while shooting the movie. Still, even with it's gross moments, "Borat" is a much better movie, with more sarcastic moments on the American Dream.
