| Would you believe - a German fantasy comedy ?
Germans are absolutely not funny. I know for I come from Germany. Germans cannot make movies fit for cinema - at least nobody did after Herzog and Fassbinder - because they cannot think "big" enough. Directors who can - Petersen or Emmerich - have emigrated to Hollywood already.

So what could you expect of a German fantasy comedy movie ? See, that's exactly what I expected... and I was surprised how good this film was. Fun, fantasy, a nearly surrealistic story and - not one of the virtues of German productions - good acting by main characters Ohrt and Riemann, the latter I believe to be one of the few Germans to rightfully deserve the title "actress". Just watch her in "Die Apothekerin" where she plays a black widow killing her lovers and husbands and still remains kind of funny and pleasantly.

One of the most entertaining German comedies ... ever !
