| Why wasn't this film shown overseas?!?!
During my last trip to Germany I had the pleasure of finally seeing this film, after having been a fan of the American script for years. Okay, they wimped out and simplified the structure. And what the heck is that sado-masochistic relationship between the detective and the hit woman all about?! But it was still a kick to see this very odd German version of "Long Hello." Lots of flashy visuals, good sack scenes between the leads, plenty of twists, and that great conclusion. Some striking images you probably won't forget. Can't wait for the English-language film--what the heck is taking so long?! But this one is sure worth a look while we wait for the Hollywood version to film from the original script, they say, finally, this year?! Let's hope so! And I got to add, love the title.
