Completely unlike any other film - in a great way
9 February 2020 | by nbbigfan3800See all my reviews

I caught this German indie comedy - the director's debut film - and was blown away by the thoughtful, respectful way the director featured disabled characters as the central protagonists, (one of the actresses actually has Downs Syndrome but the rest don't have the disabilities they're portraying from what I can tell) not in a typical "struggle" story way but as fully developed characters. The plot is devoid of pity for the characters - who are shown in their full range, warts and all - and the movie was darkly hilarious - it translates through plenty of physical comedy that doesn't even need the subtitles. The director has been earning awards for it as well, rightfully so!
