What to Do in Case of Fire?

"Very Good"

What to Do in Case of Fire? Review


Kind of cute, this German flick asks what happens when anarchists grow up (and of course, if there's a fire). The fire this time is a bomb placed 15 years ago that never went off, until now. Now our heroes -- all adults and long since gone corporate -- have to retrieve a critical bit of evidence before the cops close in. Interesting and often fun, but it's a little over-earnest.

Aka Was tun, wenn's brennt?
