Decent, yet to close to the truth
28 March 2016 | by See all my reviews

There are many gems to be found here. And it might actually be funnier, if it weren't so close to the truth. Or maybe that makes this worth more (seems funnier). This goes over the top of course too and some of the things that happen here, will not happen in real life (hopefully). But the intent and some of the suggestions are here already. And you do wonder, where this will lead Germany.

While the country is on the fence (not a literal one-yet) on which direction the people want it to go, there is a lot things brewing. And most of them are not really good. Or funny as they are portrayed in this one. Not to mention that evil pursuers are not always as stupid as they are portrayed in the movie here ...
