One more version
I've seen the original Italian, the Spanish, French, Korean and now German versions of the exact same movie. All made within three years of each other! And there's still the Greek, Turkish, Indian, Mexican, Hungarian, Chinese, Russian, Armenian, Polish and Lebanese versions! And I have to come here and read people saying stuff like "One of the best German movies in the last 20 years" or "Smart and unexpectedly brilliant German comedy"! Really?!? I must say I have a bit of a morbid fascination how these things happen. I'm guessing a good idea for a story that is universal and resonates with audiences, and that can be done with a very limited budget has something to do with this phenomenon. This version, at least, has the balls to correct the atrocious ending of the original (which none of the other versions I saw did). That's the best thing I can say about this movie.
