2 totally different men in the lift
3 July 2006 | by serdar_akalinSee all my reviews

Only advised to German speaking people, and for the people lived in Germany knowing typically German point of view. The film consisted of little stories which very intelligently forming the whole story. In which two totally different men accidentally meet in a lift and the lift is broken down. It is Friday and there is no hope to get out. Richard, who has already been a long time in the lift and already lost his connection to real life , supposedly had been the same type of man like his new guest: yuppie, business oriented suffering shortness of time Erich and the dialogs between them is the main story. The film ironically criticizes near the whole German life in a very luscious and intelligent manner. The dialogs are nearly all in a heavy hessisch dialect,and the last point, the more you watch the film the more interesting it gets. I myself have seen it at least 5 times until I nearly memorized the dialogs. A must see for the all foreigners lived in Germany.
