Great show
27 June 2019 | by GlackaSee all my reviews

I recall seeing this on the TV back in 1979/1980. Great and very funny off-beat show. Not sure how it has aged, but my guess is that it still holds up, especially as it plays in 1920's Berlin. Glad to see Christoph Waltz finally making it big. He was GREAT in this too!

Would LOVE to watch this again!
