I watched this film last night expecting to see a comedy; and although it has its funny moments, it's more a story of relationships and standing up for what you believe in. And its done brilliantly. I didn't recognise any of the cast but I will definitely be looking out for Til Schweiger (Tim) and Martin Feifel (Hotte) again. Their performances were brilliant.
As for the storyline, watching this band of former 80s anarchists reunite to destroy the evidence of their crime is highly entertaining. You feel sorry for them, you hate them, you even cry for them (thanks to Hotte's heartbreaking frenzy). This film will have you on a rollercoaster of emotions and will keep you hooked right till the end. Which, if you ask me, is the whole point of watching a film.
If you enjoyed "The Edukators", you're gonna love this, because this film actually goes somewhere. There's nothing wishy washy about it, the plot is persistent and the characters are varied and real, allowing you to empathise with their various ups and downs. All in all, superb.

An excellent film featuring a group of former anarcho-terrorists brought back together by an act they perpetrated a lifetime ago. While not quite as laugh out loud funny or containing as many heart-wrenching moments as Goodbye Lenin, What To Do... is in the same mould, casting wistful but self-admittedly rose-tinted glances back to a different era.

The cast and characters are strong, if at times a little unsurprising but their banter and compansionship delivers a powerful story of the way that changes strain kinship and impact on choices.

This film is the best German language film of recent years outside of Goodbye Lenin.

A tale of friendship, ideals and compromise, accompanied by an excellent sound track and a nice sense of humour. Good acting, good script, in the whole quite an enjoyable film, shame about the lack of that extra bit of courage needed to add solid credibility which would have made it outstanding.

This is an intensely humane and funny movie about a group of political punks who have hit middle age. They know time has passed but they wonder if they can acknowledge both that, and the radical ideals they held when they were young. The plot, which is relatively conventional - a sort of heist in reverse - offers an effective vehicle for exploring the problems all of us face when our younger selves step out from memory to challenge what age, mortgages and children have done to us.

Films that star Til Schweiger can be hit and miss, thankfully this is former. German cinema is a niche market and Til has a habit of appearing in more than his fair share of films and this really is to his detriment. What to do.... features pretty much an ensemble cast with some pretty special performances by Nadja Uhl, Martin Feifel and Til Schweiger. Although the film has comedic value, its real strength is portraying relationships and moral values. This set within the backdrop of political change in 1980/1990's Germany makes for a very entertaining film that hasn't got the recognition it rightly deserves since being released. If you understand German, then you should leave of the subtitles because at times, seem to be out of sync, also there was a period of about 5 minutes during the film when the subtitles stopped, luckily I speak German. If I was a non German speaker, I would have knocked a star off the rating. The special features also benefit from subtitles which is usually unheard of. This film is a welcome addition to my German language collection and I recommend it.
