"Filmaker Rudolph Herzog succeeds in putting across the full drama of this daring adventure [...] In the stillness of one's sitting-room, one is nothing short of amazed - and how often is one truly astonished in front of the television?"
"a tale of negligence and hubris that makes one speechless... at other times one can't help but laugh out loud"
Truggestalten creates an impressive atmosphere... a clever montage, very convincingly assembled. A most successful fiction debut.
"intrguing...[a] fascinating study of jokes during the Third Reich...raises compelling questions"
-THE SUNDAY TIMES
