my funniest film of the last 12 month
17 April 2014 | by freeminonSee all my reviews

I watched "The Mamba" in Vienna in a sold out theater. People were laughing the whole time... It was a grate atmosphere.

Michael Niavarani, the super-star of the Austrian cabaret, Proshat Madani, Christoph Maria Herbst the super-star of the German-comedy and also the "Tomb Rider" Melika Forutan are all doing a really great job. The film is a mix between Slapstick, screwball-comedy and Action-film. The Camera has a very unusual stile for an Austrian film and also the set design of the film never gives you the feeling of an Austrian production! :)

I think if you like Johnny English, you will enjoy also "The Mamba"!!
