Not so Magical Cinema Evening
20 September 2017 | by christianberningerSee all my reviews

The film actually has potential due to the performer, but has no content, no story, no suspense and little joke. The gags are relatively transparent and flat. Overall, it is very hard to watch the film. The structure reminds something of the movie "American Honey". Much on the bus. Many short fast dialogues. The Karl Schmidt does not really get out of his way. Overall really disappointing.
