I watched ‘Er Ist Wieder Da’ (‘Look Who’s Back’, 2015, based on the bestselling novel by Timur Vernes) expecting an innovative, controversial comedy with very questionable taste indeed – but essentially a gimmick. Instead I found an extremely astute, insightful, cutting satire with moments of hilarity and horror, and an absolute renunciation of political complacency. A fantastic performance by Oliver Masucci and a multifaceted movie with a resonant message. Definitely recommended!
