      Mateusz C It should get translation, it deserves to be show to the world Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 07/23/23 Full Review jin l amazing amazing, especially when i watched it in german original sound and russian subtitles and understood almost everything from the russian :D and the movie itself, about money, friendship (or let's say love, really?), life and death, money and sex, family and friends, the question on the most important things in life (it was car and threesome and sea, but all in all, it's life or let's say health - and the second most important is money, obviously - and then it's about experience, it's about the wishes in your heart) and also towards the end, this metaphor of watching sunset by the sea, it touches my heart more than anything. oh, and this guy called martin brest, i didn't like him at the beginning, but all his very non german behavior of breaking the rules while living a wonderful and exciting period at the end of his life, this spirit is so so precious. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Deep and touching... Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member German film from 1997 and a nice little surprise for me. Two men, both diagnosed with illness that gives them just a few more days or weeks meet up at a hospital. They get hammered and steal a car. One of them has never seen the ocean, so they just have to do it.The car they steal is driven by two gangsters. Filled with guns and cash the car is hot and our two friends are now in even bigger trouble than you usually are when you steal a car. Funny and entertaining film. It's actionfilled and easy going. It's pretty simple and is only for quick fun so it won't be remembered for long. It's carried by the great plot idea and it does not bring out many surprises. 7.5 out of 10 cases of "Helsinki" syndrome. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review jack d Great movie about friendship Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Funny and touching. Great take on a familiar premise.
