"A delightful, parodic farce. Director and writer Niki List plays tricks with the most famous detective characters in film history, with the themes of film noir, but also with ordinary soap operas. The smart male reincarnation of Sam Spade, Philip Marlowe & Co is simply called Max Müller. He also has an office and a pretty smart secretary, Miss Schick. As long as Müller doesn't get any orders and only empties the very last whiskey bottles, she sings "Because I'm so sexy" or "Men are like marzipan" with a trusting look in her eyes. Max Müller himself and his assistant Larry, borrowed from German TV series, are not made of marzipan, however. This turns out to be the case when the two of them receive a fat commission from a wealthy client named Ingrid Bergman (Barbara Rudnik has never been seen more mysterious). To reveal more would be mean." TAGESSPIEGEL

"When we made the film, laughter in itself was something like quality. It could also be seen as a service to the audience's health." NIKI LIST
