Magical Misery Tour
23 September 2017 | by tablemountain1912See all my reviews

The film is based on a Sven Regener book whom I regard one of the better contemporary authors in Germany. His previous books 'Herr Lehmann' and 'Neue Vahr Süd' where made into a film and a TV mini series respectively and I found them entertaining, intelligent and funny versions of the books. When I heard that Magical Mystery Tour was made into a film I got all excited, bought a ticket and spent two miserable hours watching this piece of cinematic garbage. There are some glimpses of hope, mainly in the beginning, but it doesn't last long. The film loosely follows the book and is made up entirely of stupid dialogue and cringe-worthy situations that fail to be funny. Not a highlight of German cinema.
