Otto - Der Film Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Starring the popular comic personality of Otto Waalkes (co-director with Xavier Schwarzenberger), this farce is essentially a vehicle to demonstrate Waalkes multiple talents. The plot is nothing more than a series of vignettes -- Otto hamming it up on an airplane flight or Otto as a barber in a black wig. A cross between Peter Sellers, Woody Allen, and Jerry Lewis, Otto is constantly chased after by creditors while he himself chases after the woman of his dreams, a wealthy damsel who secretly loves him anyway. This film did well enough to inspire a 1988 sequel, Jerry Lewis. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi
