Taking it to another level
31 May 2015 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

I still haven't read the novels this is based on (the chronology is supposedly off with the movie, this actually would have been before the book/movie Dampfnudelblues) and everyone who has read them tells me, they are even better than the movies, which is hard to cope. But as it is, this gets it right once again.

Actually it doesn't only get it right, it makes it even better. You have to like that special kind of humor of course. If you do, you will have a blast with this. The characters are small town "crazy" and this could be a German version of a Fargo world or something similar. Not that I want to compare the director or the movie as a whole with Fargo. It's the characters in it, that are similar.

You don't have to see the first one before watching this, but it would make sense. Not to mention that it's also a great movie too. Have fun (and you will), that's all I can say!
