Storyline

Rufus Lindner finally made it - his first movie is in production. The story is quite simple: The Pope's underground agents have always deleted VIPs that were in the Vatican's way. Now, Kai Rabe is about to reveal all the crimes. He has to deal with sinister monks and secret agents. But one day, the leading actress is murdered. Rufus, the first-time director, has to deal with many problems now: His ever-drunk teen-idol Kai Rabe rents two Israelian bodyguards who shoot just a little too quickly, his reckless producer wants the show to go on, even after the second murder took place, his set is disturbed by an investigating policeman who falls in love with a beautiful actress who happens to be the playwright's sister. What's next? Written by Julian Reischl <julianreischl@mac.com>

Best German (black) comedy 1998
30 November 1998 | by SirKlineSee all my reviews

Compared to the last years, the German comedy was very quiet and almost hidden this year. But this one breaks it. A good laugh. A cool soundtrack (includes classic to 50'ies pop to "Tito & Tarantula") and the cast is a German who-is-who but (luckily) without Til Schweiger & Katja Riemann. If you like a laugh, watch this movie!
