Christopher, 31, tolerably good-looking but frustrated single and proud owner of a little Renault car, is dreaming of a celebrated career as an author. But he is stuck on writing dime novels. And because his salary is not nearly enough he part-times at a car rental agency. On one of those days, Christopher witnesses an especially perky theft. A young man starts to tamper with a class 7 BMW of the rental car company and rushes off. The young author is appalled but suddenly has a great idea. What if he could use this professional for a research project in the criminal environment? He could be within the presence of real gangsters for his research for an authentic crime novel. So Christopher starts hanging out with Dominic. And after a few difficulties at the start, the hit it off and Dominick introduces him into the underworld. Christopher is thrilled. But Dominic emerges to be an unreliable and unpredictable jack ass, who steers Christopher from one catastrophe to the next.Written by

Ewa (Polish starlet Anna Dereszowska) does what girls like her always do when they want to get guys like us to like them: laugh a lot and pour us drinks. What is true for her is true for the entire movie. It tries very hard to please the audience. But we're not some guy, and this is not a date. We're discerning moviegoers, and this is supposed to be an offbeat comedy. But the story is so pointless and the jokes are so lame it's hard to stay interested, or awake. The only character I developed a fleeting interest in is the publisher's petite groupie (Anne Bolik). Too bad she has an on-screen total of about 15 seconds. Everybody else feels like they're from the cardboard cut-out section of "Wrestling Writer's Block for Dummies". Key message: Düsseldorf is really ugly. Like we didn't know. I guess writer-director Christian Zübert isn't the next Kevin Smith after all. I recommend his debut, "Lammbock", instead.
