The newest film by Harald Sicheritz starring Roland Düringer and his old `Schlabarett' mates is different from the others (Hinterholz 8, Freispiel, Wanted etc.) in three points: it is faster and visually more evaluate; and it is not as exclusively Viennese. About half of the characters (and thank God also the actors) are of German origin. Düringer is the big loser this time, and the Germans are the winners because they have the better humour, more money and wits. None of them is nice, all the characters are extremely exaggerated and extremely unlikeable.
The plot of the film is confusing, the editing impressively fast and the dialogues are full of wickedness.
I'm still not sure what to think of Poppitz but it's definitely Harald Sicheritz's best film and worth watching.
