This is possibly one of the best German movies ever made it won 6 prestigious European awards and 9 German movie awards it is worth it buying this movie although the beginning was to boring but it explains what happens latter on in the movie

This is one of those rare German films that is (1) really, really funny, even for non-Germans, and (2) so well subtitled that the humor completely carries over. The first time I saw this film was in a conventional theater with about 300 other people, and I know from the laughs that at best only six of us spoke German. That is not to say that the others weren't laughing; quite to the contrary, the house was roaring. For anyone not personally familiar with East Germany, life behind the Iron Curtain or any other cultural issues related to these topics, this film is handled so well in its conception and execution that a novice can learn an awful lot in two hours. The laughs come genuinely; the relationships are tangibly real and the plot, though necessarily somewhat contrived, plays perfectly off of them. For students of German, the language may be difficult in spots but the elocution is excellent and the subtitles will carry anyone over any difficulties. This film is thoroughly enjoyable on all levels.

This movie is one of the best movies I have is genuinely well made and one doesn't even feel like they are reading is sweet, funny, and a movie that makes you glad movies exist.

I enjoyed this movie, but I felt they could have gone a whole lot further with the idea. The taxi-driver/astronaut was an example of what they could have done to make a truly hilarious film without becoming farcical. The movie is worth a look, but it's nothing great.
