FIRST HALF FUNNY
10 May 1999 | by J. SteedSee all my reviews

Though never subtle this Dieter Hallervorden vehicle does not have the tastelessness of some of his other films, and certainly the first half is entertaining and funny (a little knowledge about German politics is required here). But the satire dies out and the story switches to a too sentimental story with Dieter trying to get back his young friend Paul. Only at the end the satire comes back, but the viewer (at least this one) is already too bored with Paul to be interested again. The end of the film is very badly scripted: at once the film is over and the viewer waiting for a meaningful ending. Director Schabenitzky keeps the comedy and especially Hallervorden under control thereby avoiding getting it too farcical.
