Well, I'm amazed by so many of the reviews giving this film such a high rating, bordering on "Master Piece"?? WOW. I endured this film, and really it is an endurance experience, waiting for something of substance to take place but it meandered along, so slow, so boring, so damned stupid, so pointless. I watch a lot of European cinema, and many of these are German films, so I cant be ridden off as a Popcorn kid who only watches Hollywood action. I had high expectations and hung in there to the fizzle ending. Its maybe German funny? The dinner Party at his daughter place, well that was kinda funny, in a very weird awkward way. Maybe if it was trimmed to a neat 90 minutes, but close to 3 hrs. Check it out, tell me if I'm wrong.
