| The best film based on Ralf König' comics so far
Yesterday, I saw this film. I didn't know anything about it before and was surprised how light-hearted and charming it is, just like the comic books from Ralf König, a famous German comic author. Unlike other films based on Ralf König's comics (Der bewegte Mann, Kondom des Grauens), this film transports all the spirit you feel when reading the comics. I laughed from the first minute to the last. The humour is partly subtle and partly very obvious. The film sure has a layer that can only be understood by a German gay man but is nevertheless thrilling to watch for everybody.
It is for sure one of the best German comedies I saw for a long time.
Mrs Schneider gives an outstanding performance as a Russian Opera Diva, including her famous "Bulgarian" accent - so be sure to see the original version in German.
