Audience Reviews for Die Stille nach dem Schuß (The Legend of Rita) (The Legends of Rita)

I was pretty excited about this movie. The beginning had me interested, but it all went down hill from there. The plot jumped around so much, and so quickly, that I was always confused. Not only did the plot jump around like a kangaroo, but everything happened so fast I had no idea where the characters were, what they were doing, WHY they were doing it, and how they got there in the first place. It seemed like someone chopped the script into a hundred pieces then taped it back together in the wrong order, and losing some pieces on the way.
Another disappointing movie...
