Schtonk! is a farce of the actual events of 1983, when Germany's Stern magazine published, with great fanfare, 60 volumes of the alleged diaries of Adolf Hitler – which two weeks later turned out to be entirely fake. Fritz Knobel (based on real-life forger Konrad Kujau) supports himself by faking and selling Nazi memorabilia. When Knobel writes and sells a volume of Hitler's (nonexistent) diaries, he thinks it's just another job. When sleazy journalist Hermann Willié learns of the diaries, however, he quickly realizes their potential value... and Knobel is quickly in over his head. As the pressure builds and Knobel is forced to deliver more and more volumes of the fake diaries, he finds himself acting increasingly like the man whose life he is rewriting. The film is a romping and hilarious satire, poking fun not only at the events and characters involved in the hoax (who are only thinly disguised in the film), but at the discomfort Germany has with its difficult past.

John E (ag) wrote: To me it seems like this movie is trying to be 2 things, an intellectual thriller and a martial arts flick, unfortunately it fails on both counts. there is very little in the form of character development and the movie just takes on way too much with very little panache or cohesion. Despite the intention of delivering a strong message in honor and the code of a warrior, it comes off cheesy and clumsy, too much for my liking. If the martial arts is good, I can forgive a poor story, if the story is good, I can forgive poor martial arts. Unfortunately both are below average, the film starts out so humble and weirdly familiar but all of a sudden the story becomes complicated, unnecessarily so and the there is ridiculous plot point after ridiculous plot point and in the finish, the triumph of the lead, seems very insignificant. Very disappointing, I was expecting some good clean BJJ, instead there are a word of problems which don't get solved and a concluding fight which means nothing. None the less, the ideal and pure idea was appealing to me and ignoring all the rubbish in the film, It was still watchable, if only for the unwavering integrity of the Chiwetel Ejiofor's character.

Costner's performance was on and off, and Demi seemed like she'd rather have been anywhere else. The story line is creepy to begin with, and it's presentation is confusing and meanders A LOT! The creators seemed like they couldn't figure out how much they wanted to reveal, and kept changing their mind as they went along. There was only implied violence, and then when they finally decided to show the audience some, it was more extreme than necessary, especially when they hadn't shown any so far. As far as thrillers go, this was just unsettling and certainly not worth it.
