Critic Reviews for Erleuchtung garantiert (Enlightenment Guaranteed)
With its lack of visual artistry and its overabundance of expository dialogue, I was bored not long after it began.
Doris Dorrie obviously loves these guys, not in spite of their foibles and failings, but, oddly, because of them.
Sometimes movies transcend their descriptions. Who would want to see a German film about a couple of brothers heading for Japan to visit a Zen monastery?
Its coda--set in that remote monastery--shows signs that enlightenment, if not actually guaranteed, might still be possible for a couple of cranky Europeans.
Audience Reviews for Erleuchtung garantiert (Enlightenment Guaranteed)
A wonderful little comedy/drama. Very true to life, amusing, and even moving -- a genuine little Zen tale!
This movie is charming on the whole, but even if it doesn't catch your fancy, it's worth sitting through just for the scene where "I Will Survive" is sung in drunk, slurred German. A man, distraught over being dumped by his wife, follows his brother on a pilgrimage to a Buddhist monstery in Tibet.
