It's an OK movie to watch, but Anschütz's culinary endeavours often feel like some sort of carnival, like a dystopic game of cowboys and Indians.
This is more plain potatoes rather than sumptuous Sushi.
With an interesting premise and great actors, the movie falters because of its generic script and has trouble filling its running time.
The East German bureaucrats are initially reluctant to support the courageous plan, but quickly change their minds due to the "peaceful contest between nations", and because Anschütz-san's carp-and-rice concoctions sell like, erm, hot buns.
Even the local paper wrote about it - and this should change the life of Rolf Anschütz forever.
