Fine German movie. Not really being a fan of Till Schweiger I found him to be really good. Also as a big fan of Moritz Bleibtreu I thought he was a standout. Well, you can argue why a German plays a Turkish gangster, but I think back in the day that wasn’t really an issue.
The story was light and fun, but I was hoping for more dramatic depth. Maybe my expectations were too high because I actually have never watched this movie and over here in Germany it’s held as one of the big 90’s classics.
Overall it’s a fun movie with some corny German humor that took me out a little bit sometimes.
