On the seventh day of the crime scene "-Commissioner Felix Murot (Ulrich Tukur) would like to have"finally free. He has the time loop fill, shoots in the Morning on the phone, once it rings, ignore the Bank robbery, to which he again and again called, moves in a good mood, in casual clothes to the countryside, visited a trip locally and throws the poor waitress is a pie in the face, because: "I can do what I want." There is something to it, because what is to fear Murot? If you know that the day always ends with death, but the prompt is re-birth included, does not mean the: boundless freedom? Eternal Life? "Murot and the Groundhog", the second "crime scene" by Dietrich Brüggemann (screenplay, direction, music) to "jam", is a wild Ride, funny, grotesque, and profound manner – and, of course, a parody of the detective-television, the self-loop is a kind of time.
That Brüggemann ("way of the cross", "salvation") ended up with his idea at the Hessian broadcasting company, fits perfectly. Since 2010, in particular, the Murot movies test the limits of the "crime scene"series. You apply, depending on your perspective, as a grandiose amount of points or annoying impositions, but one thing is for certain, and that Routine is not expected to Tukur alias Murot. Also in the movie it is with the supposed Routine on the first day will soon be over. After a quarter of an hour of the Bank robbery, the Murot ("don't you know wanted to kill you, don't you know all") and left afloat on the stage, bloody to the end. And then? Scares Murot in his bed, it is 7: 29 am, the phone rings, Mrs Magda Wächter (Barbara Philipp) reports a Bank robbery.
The purification of the hero
So, a loop in time and experience movie-the protagonists, not for the fun of it, even if the Humor is an important factor. In the end it has to be a kind of catharsis, a purification of the hero. Like when Bill Murray played a cynical weatherman Phil Connors in the classic "Groundhog day". In the "crime scene" hits enjoyed by the daily Routine bored Murot on a fate, the pale, puzzles Stefan Giese king (Christian Ehrich) and his girlfriend Nadja Eschenbach (Nadine Dubois). Also, Gieseking is trapped in a time loop, anyway, Murot, and the hostage-takers greet each other like old friends. Your purification is now to recognize the many moments in which each Allerweltstag is different. In Murots words: "Every day is a gift." To be able to use the time loop to exit, it must not only survive it, but also all the others – what it's like to rates on a daily basis with a variety of different types of miss. To do this, Murot need to find out in several start-UPS, who is this hostage taker is actually, what is driving him and his girlfriend. In all of the strange and humorous twists and turns so there is also a classic investigation.
This is not a day like any other, the Bruges man is told with a great sense for situational Comedy. The Jogger (Katharina Schlothauer), Murot in the hallway, met the neighbor (Daniel Zillmann), is annoying him with loud music, the mother (Anna Brüggemann) and the child running to him in front of the door in front of the feet, as well as the Punk-rocker girl (Desiree Klaeukens), who wants to clean at the traffic light, the panes of his car, experiencing each day differently and to survive in any case. The Comedy comes from the fact that all the other characters except Murot and the hostage-taker of a time loop, nothing to know, from cost Brüggemann, especially at the site in front of the Bank. These scenes are wonderful Miniatures, parodies on the same productions in the television crime drama. To count by the way: Indignant, the bodies, of course, makes no sense. The Variation of the possible kinds of death here, as in every black Comedy for pleasure.
A roller-coaster ride for Tukur
"Murot and the Groundhog" had been the most exhausting "scene of the crime" he had ever shot, said the main actor, Ulrich Tukur. No wonder, every day, by Murot lives in a different state, this roller-coaster ride is a great template for Tukurs joy of playing. Murot is confused, totally confused, in between, a determined and cleaned up, then returned to full complete rage and drunk. He determined in a Bathrobe, jumping out the window or even to a hostage-taker. The actual destination of the wild ride, however, is less a crime, but to prevent it at all. This is a satisfying TV police work.More about
