the most good movie I have always seen
19 April 2000 | by extranjeroSee all my reviews

When I saw thise movie the first time, I have thinked "oh la la"! This movie ist the best of all ever maked movies ever again. Otto Waalkes mackes you laugh and cry at the same time. Otto and her girlfriend Sonja are the greatest actores I know. In this genius work there are alll elements that a cult film nieds: phanomenalice actors, deepsensual and amazing dialogs, special effects like Matrix or Star Wars Episode 1, a complex storyline and of corse Ottos great sense of humor. Yes its just AMAZING!!!
