Wooohoooo , loved this one
14 December 2015 | by hubersalinaSee all my reviews

I really loved this film, even when it wasn't advertised at all in my town and it also just could be seen for a week! Seven days! In a town with more than 200.000 people living in it...... Why ? :'(

People said "it is a German production, it will be boring". Well, I would say "it is a German production, great it wasn't boring at all!!!" The female main actress was playing very well, the male main actor also, I liked the animations. It seemed to me that they hadn't as much money as they wanted to, but that isn't their fault. For me it could have been a longer film, and I would like to see that they will make a second part or something else like this.
