Trivia

While the main characters do travel around the world, the film takes place in a couple of fancy hotels. Technically classifying this as a bottle movie. Which could be a metaphor for their corporate behavior that takes away their humanity and reduces them to sharks looking for blood in the water, with their eyes only on the money and absolutely no interest in what really goes on in the world. As if they've created their own little bubble that they choose to live in. See more »

How do you say 'a real turkey' in German?
15 June 2014 | by See all my reviews

I was intrigued by the trailer for this film and decided to go see it based on the rating on IMDb. What a mistake! It starts out well enough, and for the first half hour or so actually seems like it might go somewhere. Then, the plot reels out of control into a completely implausible, ethnocentric (borderline racist), fantasy of what German business consultants get up to when traveling in 'third-world' countries. The main problem is that whoever wrote the screenplay evidently has little or no experience of actual business people or the countries portrayed. The characters are puerile and two-dimensional. Their actions and reactions amount to little more than bad caricature. I felt sorry for the actors, who struggle to make the characters believable and sometimes even succeed. The trouble is the screenplay, as well as some pretty poor decisions regarding production design (particularly the use of abstract backdrops to represent the cityscape outside hotel windows). This only reinforces the impression that you're watching a theatre play that has been poorly adapted into a film.
