not even the Käptn can save this movie from drowning in boredom
21 April 2013 | by tajeva-memberSee all my reviews

After Quellen Des Lebens we wanted to give German Movies another chance and were truly disappointed by this one. Katja Rieman is a good actress but no one can act convincingly with these flat dialogs. The actors always seemed to wait for someone to save them or say cut. Even Robert Gwisdek seemed not right in place in some scenes which nevertheless belong to the best this movie has to offer. Due to him, Bonaparte and the nice landscape three stars, otherwise zero. it's a shame that french movies are so much better and independently funded and the results of no one daring to be real creative and innovative leads to movies like this. I'm really sorry for the actors.
