Kokowaah -- Film Review
This sleek father-meets-daughter comedy is from actor-director Til Schweiger, who is arguably German's biggest star.
BERLIN -- Arguably Germany's biggest star, Til Schweiger has also carved out a niche as one the country's most commercially successful directors. His newest effort, Kokowaah (as a child might pronounce "coq au vin"), neatly continues this trend and should deliver strong box-office results in German-speaking territories and perhaps minor theatrical play in Russia and Eastern Europe where Schweiger apparently has a following. The film's lack of an adequate second lead, sickening sweetness and bumbling narrative should preclude any other major expansion, since plot and execution are far from original.
