Slappy McGee's rating of the film Papirosen

Starts off pretty strong and I found myself fully engaged in this terribly dysfunctional family and their various bickering, fights and other antics. It becomes very repetitive and obnoxious and it's obvious that the director is trying to force in deeper "meaning" with family film footage. Also, there are no likable family members and that's a problem. I was a bit underwhelmed by where this ultimately ended up.
