Audience Reviews for A Friend of Mine

  • Oct 22, 2009
    I do appreciate the statement of the movie, find joy in simple things and don't take life too seriously, unfortunately I found the execution a bit bland and formulaic and relying too much on Vogel's performance who kind of constitutes the antithesis of the protagonists lifestyle, but his character is ultimately constructed in too random a fashion and disconnected from realistic causality to be realistic and engaging. The overall tone of the movie is bleak and the sarcastic humour which is supposed to signify an escape from the mills of everyday life comes across as nod to the gallows instead of silver lining behind the cloud. I can see where the filmmakers were trying to go, but I found the movie too uninspired and middle of the road. HX

    I enjoyed this movie more than i would have thought. Daniel Bruhl, plays Karl, is an indifferent yet brilliant employee for an insurance company, when his boss assigns him to an insulting job just to provoke him. He meets Hans, who shows him a different side of life, albeit quirky.
