One of the best german movies since the 90s.
When it comes to really interesting german movies since the 90s, there aren't many you can recommend. ABSOLUTE GIGANTEN, IM JULI, GEGEN DIE WAND, LAMMBOCK and VERSCHWENDE DEINE JUGEND belong to these movies, because they have a unique style and real quality. LANGER SAMSTAG is different, but important as well:
The movie is about a Gisela, who is working in a gas station and is kicked out the day before Christmas by the vice-boss of the supermarket, to which her gas station belongs. This happens the day bfore christmas. With the help of a young man (CAMPINO), she tries to take revenge. As the story continues, the vice-boss tries to rob the money from his own safe to cheat the insurance and in the end everybody tries to get the money...
So much about the plot, which isn't great at all. But the movie breathes the air of movies like "Zwei Nasen tanken Super" and has the heart to be german, including accents and all that stuff. It also features that kind of stupid slapstick you laugh about, even you are ashamed. And when the police, played die DIE TOTEN HOSEN, arrive at the supermarket, they just blew the screen.
So, not a good movie at all, but a must see instead.
