Trivia

Alex Christensen says about the B&W speakers in his studio that one costs "about as much as a small Learjet". They're B&W 800 (2nd generation) which cost about $10,000 each. See more »

Goofs

In the flashback, Fraktus are reported to have released a song called "Supergau" in 1982 (similar to 'beyond design basis accident' on nuclear plants). While this term was not generally unknown by the time, it became common in German language only after the Tchernobyl accident in 1986. See more »

If you can do not read anything about this "movie/documentary"
16 July 2013 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

I mean it! I just went into the Berlin International festival without knowing one thing about this and I was more than positively surprised by the result/movie. Let's just say that it is a comedy and it works on many levels, even if I wasn't sure for a long time. It is actually Germanys answer to another international movie that is considered a classic, which I won't name, because that it would be obvious what we have on our hands here.

The people involved in this gave their all and while not everything works as neat as they might have thought, this still is really well executed and made my day. If you like to have a few laughs and be somewhat entertained, this could be your movie. And if you know German show business there might be something extra in it for you
