Christoph Maria Herbst,
The movie has some nice scenery and a clever "movie in movie" idea to offer, plus the occasional odd Bavarian character. Other than that I am sorry to say that it failed for me. The "use your fantasy" theme soon started to bore me (Lars von Trier's Dogville showed that it can be done right), the director's struggles became annoying. There was no character I felt attached to, although the acting was solid.
Maybe my expectations were too high, I really liked the trailer. I did not have one laugh from this movie, but some other viewers did, although my impression was that they really tried hard.
Maybe one should not be so harsh with a student project, but then again John Carpenter's Dark Star was a student project, too. However, it should be mentioned that the movie was technically executed without a flaw.
