One of the most famous, loved and highly rated movies is Knocking on Heaven's door. You've probably heard the song Knocking on Heaven's door by Bob Dylan and the phrase "In heaven, they're talking about nothing but the sea and how wonderful it is". But mostly we remember that we watched it once a long time ago, in the early 2000s, and except for the last frame and this winged phrase, we can't remember anything. And the film is very unusual, funny, and, what is quite surprising - it is not an English film, but a German one! It is surprising because it is perceived as a classic of world cinema.
"Reach for Heaven" is a road movie, a comedy about two terminally ill young men, Martin Brest (Til Schweiger), who has just been diagnosed with a large brain tumour, and Rudy Wurlitzer (Jan Josef Liefers), who suffers from bone sarcoma. They end up in the same ward and decide to have fun in the last days of their lives.
