Shameless display of the corrosion of Germany's public TV stations!
Except for the role of Götz George all actors are absolutely hilariously awful. The conversations especially with younger people are as staged and unrealistic as they could be. Also there is a very strong racist undertone in this movie. It almost watches like a propaganda film for some racist party. And the conclusion? Old men gets a gun. Evil immigrants are put to jail!? What the heck?? Who is supposed to believe this? Who's supposed to enjoy this? This watches like a hate speech on all immigrants in Germany. They are displayed as being stupid, evil, vile and cruel. Also it is a very bad portrayal of German youth. One could really think they are all listening to extremely shitty hip hop music and hang around drinking pure vodka at 10 a.m. ! Unbelievable. What strikes me personally is how this movie was reviewed by German media. There were no positive reviews but nobody reveals this as the racist piece of film it is. There is so much wrong about this movie. I could probably make a review on every scene and tell why it's extremely bad or inadequate. And I know that the director of this movie is of Israeli descent and a Jew. Yes, I know. Makes even less sense. I would only recommend this movie if you want to find out what's happening with German public TV stations who come up with nothing but unimportant bullshit for people over 60 since years although having huge budgets and being on duty to the public as they are the ones who pay for this. What a fraud!
