The Quereinsteigerinnen

  Does anyone still actually remembers the pretty yellow telephone booths that used to animate the gray concrete to downtown? That was before the corporate strategists and public relations experts of Telekom, which indeed was still a state enterprise called the German Bundespost, the separation of the various divisions of the group prescribed the individual companies and the privatized telecommunications division, the new corporate image with the basic color magenta . Missed

Barbara (Nina Proll) and Katja (Claudia Basrawi) are among those people who mourn the sunny yellow phone booth. But unlike their fellow sufferers, they are not limited to memorable blessed sigh, but they decide on an action that will help the discarded yellow cells to make a comeback. Without further ado, they kidnap Harald Winter (Rainer Knepperges), the boss of Deutsche Telekom in order to present their demands to the group encountered in the office with great surprise, however. The abductee himself is surprised and annoyed, because the two kidnappers and their companion are terrifyingly unprofessional. If even a kidnapping, but then bitteschön a properly and professionally executed, the credo of the tough manager. But this desire can not meet the two women winter. Despite all anger is beginning to feel top of the world soon the manager of his captivity, especially since it is sweetened to stay in the seventies-house with eggnog, fun party games and all sorts of absurdities. Eventually emerge as the first yellow telephone booths on the streets again seems to prevent the abduction of her happy ending to go, but then dips the dark Special Agent Korn (Klaus Lemke) to the telephone company that wants to put an end to the nightmare.

Rainer Knepperges and Christian Mrasek both belong to the so-called Group of Cologne, a loose association of filmmakers from the cathedral city on the Rhine, the work for years and whose films through absurd humor, offbeat humor, subtle irony and courage to the unfinished and non – perfect excel – so very much like the two kidnappers in The Quereinsteigerinnen. What at first glance like a great, colorful fun comes along, but can always shine through, that in addition to the immense fun of the game also is about something else: To view the antithesis of the bloated, self-importance of participating in the German cinema, which at times before sheer emotion and good intentions, threatening to solidify. The film looks as if I Helge Schneider, together with the enfant terrible of New German Cinema Klaus Lemke (who in this film, the grain is rotzcoolen agent), a remake of The Edukators rotated. Groovy, sexy, cool!
