A surprisingly wonderful movie

I must admit that my young daughter forced me to watch this movie and my expectations were pretty low, thus slightly bored and awkward I joined her after she had already watched about half of it...And what a surprise, I instantaneously fell in love with it.The sets are wonderfully old-fashioned and German, the thing German viewers would probably get annoyed at is that a lot of German clichés are made fun of, e.g. ghost soldiers wearing spiked helmets, a castle that is reminiscent of Neuschwanstein Castle - I felt like being way back in Texas in 1987 and being asked if Germany still was a kingdom - and if they had watched this movie beforehand, they would have definitely believed so -, especially because it is hard to tell which specific time this movie is actually set in. In a way I can imagine that this feature would be more appreciated in the countries outside Germany, I do not exactly know why but most Germans do have an exceedingly hard time laughing about themselves. Though the movie's namesake the ghost Hui Buh may be a little bit over the top according to my taste, the acting is superb, especially Christoph Maria Herbst as König Julius,der 111.; his timing is absolutely brilliant (and this is probably the closest he will ever get to playing a romantic lead). The humour in this comedy is at times hilarious and silly,but never ever turns nasty. BTW I immediately ventured to watch the entire movie... ;)

Lacks in almost every area

"Hui Buh" is a German movie from 10 years ago and it includes all kinds of genres: fantasy, comedy, drama, horror, family. The horror factor, however, is pretty minimal because this was clearly also intended as a film for children. Unfortunately, this film is really nothing you want your kids to see. It is simply not a quality movie. So many genres and it does not really deliver in a single one of them. Writer and director Sebastian Niemann certainly proves again that he is nowhere near Germany's best in filmmaking. The film runs for 90 minutes without credits and includes a couple good actors for sure. But I was disappointed by almost all of them. Admittedly, almost all of them had no good material to work with, but they also did not elevate the material here. I am a great Christoph Maria Herbst fan (in "Stromberg"), but even he was underwhelming here as the main human character. Still he was better than almost everybody else and this also includes child actor Martin Kurz who was pretty bad on several occasions and delivered almost nothing positive here. His story was forgettable and just included for the sake of evoking emotions, which never happened. A failed attempt. A failed film for the most part. Do not watch.
