Did You Know?

Alternate Versions

Although the German cinema, DVD/VHS and TV versions are all rated "FSK-12", only the cinema version was uncut. All post-cinema versions were shortened or changed a few seconds that originally showed some quite shocking violence:
  • the scene showing Benno Fuehrmann's character getting shot in the head has been changed. You now see Fuehrmann falling on the ground from quite some distance. Originally you saw his face in a close up with a small entry-wound and a load of blood spattering the face of the person standing behind him.
  • when the pimp "Brilli" sets the hair of a prostitute on fire all post-cinema versions are missing a few seconds showing the shocked face of the woman and her burning head.

You'd better spend your money on the Reeperbahn
25 July 2003 | by Joker-36See all my reviews

Don't leave your money at the local video store to rent "St. Pauli Nacht`, you'd better take a walk on the wild side of Hamburgs Reeperbahn - it's much more worth the deal. This episode movie lacks everything you would commonly expect from a Sönke Wortmann film, but offers a truck load of clichés, poor acting and little boring stories (writing credits: Frank Göhre) that seem to be taken from a script writing school's waste basket or from leaflets of the Hamburg Chamber of Tourism. Certainly Sönke Wortmann has watched Jarmusch's "Night on Earth` and Altman's "Short Cuts`, but did he pay attention? Maybe it's because it has been over 10 years (!) when they came out that Wortmann fails to create an authentic atmosphere where we can really sympathize with the characters like we could in the forerunner films. The connections between the episodes are uninspired and - though unbelievable - predictable as Hamburg weather conditions one minute from now. Dramaturgy - what's that?

The fun that isn't already spoilt by these deficiencies is scared away by the cast and the camera. If I wanted to portrait a specific social setting or regional atmosphere like you find it in Hamburg's unique working class neighbourhood St. Pauli, why would I cast actors that can't even disguise their native accents and then let them try to over-pronounce in a fake northern sound? Secondly I think it's okay to reminisce Edward Hopper's work in the production design, but if I wanted to enjoy "Nighthawk` for incredible 3 minutes in a single shot, I'd go to a museum and glue my back to a chair in front of the painting. I thought movies were motion pictures... This flick is a terrible waste of time that one better tries to avoid. 2 points out of ten.
