This is my comment in Screenout Webboard:

–These are images of Paotong Tongcheu in 1981:


18.15 FROM OSTKREUZ (2006, Joern Hartmann)

I don’t know if this film is good or not. Maybe this film is as bad as Poj Arnon’s films. But I saw the images of this film and think it should be very funny.

Review of this film by Leslie Felperin in Variety:

“German microbudget spoof “18.15 From Ostkreuz” reps a trannie-tastic, deeply silly rework of the oft-filmed Agatha Christie mystery “4.50 From Paddington.” Pic stars drag artist Ades Zabel as Mrs. Hoehne, a Teutonic Miss Marple clone, who spots a woman being axed on a passing Berlin train and decides to solve the murder when the police won’t help. ”

“After the murder, clues lead Mrs. Hoehne to a hairdressing salon staffed by a broadly caricatured array of suspects, including shifty owner Horst Brueller (Pedro Sobisch), dominatrix manager Gisela Drache (Bob Schneider, fabulous), and a trash-talking Turkish intern (also Zabel), among others. Andreja Schneider plays both Mrs. Hoehne’s mousey sidekick Rosa and movie star Veranda Strunzig-Lopez. A poisoned wig once owned by Marlene Dietrich, blackmail and secret identities revealed in locked rooms are duly cranked out by script that takes mystery-solving more seriously than it needs to, resulting in too-long running time. ”
