Being hopelessly average is the kind of trait that earns Thomas Müller (acclaimed German comic Olli Dittrich) nothing but yawns from his wife and teenage son. But it’s a quality that makes him the perfect target for a research company that can turn his middle-of-the-road opinions into big results for corporations and political candidates looking to capture the attention of the everyman. When Thomas accepts a dubious job at the company – he mostly goes shopping and chitchats with his boss – his tastes and opinions suddenly start popping up everywhere.

Making a confident feature debut, writer/director David Dietl crafts a dark comedy that lets us discover along with the character just how deep the game of deception runs. Dittrich is an engaging anchor to the increasingly relevant story of the lengths to which some will go to mine valuable info on a target market, and Jonas Nay adds excellent support as the teenage son who’s still filled with the kind of piss-and-vinegar cynicism about the system that can help Dad to see what’s what.
