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

I loved Züberts two earlier films, LAMMBOCK and TREASURE OF THE WHITE FALCON. And in this one she shows again, that he can create authentic, likable characters, funny situations, that he can tell warm-hearted stories without being cheesy... but: nothing more! This movie is very nice, very entertaining, funny, but i lacks this little extra that made Züberts previous movies so special. One has the feeling that he relied to much on the stuff he knows he can do and didn't really aim for something new or pushing his limits. Moviegoers seem to see it the same way. It got decent reviews and in the cinema everybody laughed, but it bombed big time at the box office. It seems to miss some edge, some special stuff, that makes you pay seven euros.
So, lets view this one as a short rest in the career of this director and lets wait for his next movie, where he hopefully goes to the edge again!
