Storyline

Concluding with Bückling: Frederick Schopner (Volker Bruch) is fed up with the fact that his so-called team colleagues have the laurels for his ideas. At the upcoming outdoor company event, he is finally able to give the three distinguished egomanians a lesson in "High Performance". But team optimization in the Hochseilgarten was yesterday. PR manager Vanessa Kramer (Lavinia Wilson) wants to land a press coup and is based on unusual methods: she lets a perfect hostage take place - however, from detached actors. For the two spaghetti Western actors, nothing is closer than to improve their salary with real ransom and real weapons. While Vanessa is doing everything to cover up the breakdown in front of her boss (Hanns Zischler) and the media representatives present, the inexperienced hostesses have to deal with quite different problems: how to make it clear to the successful managers that they are no longer in an ingenious Rolling game?

Enjoyable black comedy about a corporate management training event
1 October 2016 | by charlesfcopeSee all my reviews

This theme has been tackled many times, but this film does the hatchet job on these ridiculous management training events rather well. We all know the sort of thing, and I've had to endure them myself. I still hold a grudge against the idiots who think that being able to climb a rope ladder or fire a paintball gun means you are a good manager. If the busted banks had spent more time checking figures instead of sending their managers on corporate training events like these, then we might all be a bit richer (what am I saying...the bankers are rich anyway, despite their catastrophic failures). Interesting that although the film is in German, all the clichés about management are in English. Altogether an entertaining farce with a message few, other than the frauds who run these sorts of events, would disagree with.
