| Superb movie, Moritz is awesome, go for it!
Firstly I am Indian and I understand little German and I generally get to watch such German movies which are available to viewers in Asia. That is why almost 80% of Moritz Bleibtreu's movies are available.

Moritz gave another stellar performance here, the actor who was Rudi Smakel was hardly anything compared to him, trust MB to deliver with any given role. Generally casting was good.

The movie, even though not at the standards of Life is Beautiful but this was also touching, funny, thrilling and all of them were at the right proportion making this movie a treat to watch. I am a big fan of the WWII, holocaust related movies and I have seen over 40 of the best titles starting from the 1940's era. Since this topic is overdone it was definitely a huge challenge for not only the script writers but the directors and actors too, and being contemporary in nature, it was pretty neatly done with very little holes.

Story line was very believable, it could be a true story for all we know. The climax was very intelligent and will make even the most stern German like Till Lindemann smirk or give a wry smile.

Deutsche movie at it's best! Highly recommended if you are a fan of this genre and especially Mr. Bleibtreu.
