After arrival Paul is introduced as the custodian and Hansi as just married wife of Peter to aunt Adele and vice versa Peter as custodian the the father-in-law. How will this mess end up?

One pretends to have a farm, the other pretends to be married in order to get married, an old aunt pays a sudden visit and becomes and unwelcome guest.
29 October 2011 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

What a funny movie! The first part is not so entertaining, but do not worry, because it just builds the complicated situation of lies and misunderstandings that is just about to make you laugh a lot. And I laughed to tears! The director is very good in leading the scenes in a fast paced and well ordered way. In movies like this the rhythm means a lot, and characters must enter and leave the screen on that very moment. The actors are all good, also the raising star of the German speaking cinema Heinz Rühmann. This movie is very similar to the American screwball comedy, and reminds also a lot the films of Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire. Some good (and short) songs give this work a little humor and cheerfulness more. See also the 1936 movie of the same director E. W. Emo "Ungeküßt Soll Man Nicht Schlafen Gehen".
