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 »

Another among the very few good German movies.
30 September 2016 | by age2.1See all my reviews

Most of the German movies are unbearably bad. Thats because the German cinema is without any vision or braveness. We (i am German) do have good cameramen and good lighting, perhaps even good stories. But the execution is mostly suffocated by the cancer that's impersonated by the public media (oeffentlich-rechtlich) dictate. Most of the good German movies come from Austria, also. So they're technically not even German. But there are a few, like a handful of good directors in Germany, like Detlev Buck, who seems to have lost his teeth a while ago, and Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck or Michael Haneke. Vicco von Bülow was our pendant to Woody Allen, but lacked depth and output. Helge Schneider made a very nice movie together with true genius Christoph Schlingensief. Peter Thorwarth made one brilliant movie. But most of the German movies, let me repeat this, are just poor and weak in so many aspects. So i congratulate Johannes Naber - you made it! A very nice Zeitgeist movie with a slow but nasty suspense. Acting and Language that has the right view on Germans - not wishful thinking. Very well chosen sound. For me it made the 7+1. Actually the movie "No Escape" seems to pick up something from this one - if i got the release dates right. I will not hesitate to recommend this to my friends and will surely add it to my "special" top 50. Thanks for capturing my full attention!
