It sucks so bad!!
23 May 2006 | by mail-1464See all my reviews

I saw this series on a festival in cologne. It won the prize for best fiction. This was absolutely ridiculous. It's a soap, nothing more. The characters are flat and the audience never gets interested in their fates. It also looks bad, even for a series with 200.000 $ budget per episode. The series is also unbelievably boring. The story could maybe be strong enough for a weak 90 minute movie, but stretched on 6 episodes... there's just nothing happening.

If the director was still alive, nobody would care for this crappy piece full of clichés.

Go, waste your time doing something else, but don't watch this junk.
