    As with other Austrian/German films, it has a very clean appearance, stylistically which I love. Great, until the drunk scene, near the end. A bit long-winded and unnecessary, but the main character/actor does a fine job.

    It is a look behind the scenes of the sad world of an aging, washed-up former pop star. Just like the location of the action, wintry Rimini, is the protagonist: gray, cold and lonely. The explicit sex scenes are as raw as the film as a whole. The story with the daughter can be forgotten, but the rest is fascinating and repulsive at the same time. A film you don't love, but you won't forget so quickly either.

    I have mixed feelings. On one hand, it was very hard to sit through. Mostly boring, depressing and awkward, but I'm curious so I white-knucled it. On the other, the last 5-10 minutes of the movie pieced up a weird metaphor for me - it felt like it was about the state in which Germany is in for the last 30 years, thanks to their constant guilt about the past. Sad and not pleasant, but maybe that was the idea.

    I love this director's raw and authentic interpretation of a not-so-glamorous society without any filters but showing it as it is—the humanity of the seniors of our society, which in the film industry often ignores. Sometimes cringing, but yet the reality is just like that. A beyond stellar interpretation of the main character.

    Not much of a story and very repetative and tedious.

    Incredible film, blending lines between fiction and documentary. Absolutely immersive, you can't help thinking Richie Bravo is a real person. Bleak, cold, sad and lonely, what an incredible experience.
