Review of ‘Buba’
You can expect plenty of crass jokes, true to the character of Buba. It is funny, loaded with dark humor, a lot of overacting, clownish even, but the script is quite good. Narrated by a voice-off, we can easily keep up with the story.
Without recurring to a sophisticated production, it is an amusing account of this character and his travails. The dubbing is relatively well pulled off, with British voice overs, that cockney accent works well.
This movie definitely has an audience. It is full of self-irony, the performances are good, within the slapstick comedy genre. The humor is crass, but it is humor at the end of the day. So grab a cold can of beer and have a knee-slapping laugh or two.
Georg Friedrich is an Austrian actor known for movies like Wild, Marija, Wild Mouse, and Freud.
