What To Do In Case of Fire? tells the humorous and touching story of six former creative anarchists who lived as house squatters in Berlin during its heyday in the 80s when Berlin was still an island in the middle of the former eastern Germany. At the end of the 80s they went their separate ways with the exception of Tim and Hotte, who have remained true to their ideals and continue to fight the issues they did as a group. In 2000, with Berlin as Germany's new capital, an event happens forcing the group out of existential reason to reunite and, ultimately, come to grips with the reason they separated 12 years ago.
Nicht schlecht und auch sehr schön und sehr filmisch photographiert, aber für meinen Geschmack etwas zu nostalgisch und gegen Ende auch zu sentimental und unglaubwürdig. Trotzdem hat mir der Film Spass gemacht, vor Allem Klaus Löwitsch als alter und harter Berliner Kommissar. Das war der vorletzte Film von Klaus Löwitsch. Ein Jahr später (2002) ist er leider viel zu früh gestorben.
Thank god I found this movie as a teenager.
A German anarchist comical concept that I actually enjoyed for a while, but it lacks force. It had great talent and a good plot, but wasted unnecessarily. The quite manipulative feel-good formula leaves an unclear statement.
The German Ocean's Eleven with a punk twise, loads more purpose, and a wonderful soundtrack (with a lovely inclusion for Manics fans).
Es ist gut, ja!
