Audience Reviews for Erbsen auf halb 6 (Peas at 5:30)

A tender little film that is the more exciting for its quite effective mixture of comedy and tragedy, both sides of which tends to feed int each others' strength and weaknesses. Most of the "funny" bits are tragic if you take a closer look, but thanks to man's ability to laugh at itself, we are treated with tragic moments that are so awkward in their attempt to fill the empty space with their seriousness, that they become inevitably funny and lend themselves to tokens of optimism, something that the film does as a whole. Turning the disastrous fate of one man into the joy of many, as it happens in many Hollywood films, but this one never strains our patience with kitsch, retains its authenticity, not least due to the great performances by the two lead and two supporting actors. The sets are interesting - reminiscent of that non-descript - 70s colour scheme that we already enjoy in most of Wes Anderson's films or films such as Napoleon Dynamite or Eagle vs. Shart. Underappreciated.
