Flatmates Peter and Jan (Goodbye Lenin's Daniel Brühl) have a shared secret: by night they break into the homes of rich folk, not to steal but to scare them out of their complacency by rearranging the contents and leaving sinister notes. When Peter's girlfriend Jule and a fat cat she owes money to become involved things go completely out of control.

Weingartner's ultimately feel-good film is never preachy, alternately funny, touching and gripping, with very likeable characters you'll be rooting for and an intelligently complex look at our consumerist society. Great soundtrack too.


brilliant, cool, sexy, exciting
