Storyline

A free-wheeling comedy, Zur Sache Schaetzchen chronicles a day in the life of Martin, a witty yet lazy songwriter who'd rather not get out of bed. During the opening sequence, Martin watches a break-in on the other side of the street. In the morning, his friend Henry forces him to report it to the police, yet Martin gets bored with the cops and flees. The two of them spent the rest of the day escaping the law, in the Munich zoo and a public bath, were Martin meets Barbara. Block, the record company executive, needs Martin's new song lyrics right away, and Martin, who continually cranks out mad random remarks, comes up with a ridiculous sailor song. In the end, Martin's playful- ness collides with the authority the police represents. The movie is certainly not plot based; it draws its superior humor from one-liners and the hilarious, carefree insanity of its protagonist. Written by Jurgen Muck Fauth

Trivia

Director May Spils and male lead Werner Enke wrote and made this movie as a couple. And although Enke's semi-autobiographical role displays him as insouciant, flippant, variable and erratic, the two have stayed together ever since. See more »

Tedious Pseudo-Avantgarde
26 May 2006 | by (Germany; Berlin) – See all my reviews

I had heard so much about this production that I decided to purchase it at a local charity auction. Now, after over five months, I finally got to watch it. Alas, I have to conclude: Bullshit! Don't expect the slightest trace of any sort of coherent dramaturgy, let alone interesting characters. All you get to see is a bunch of pseudo-provoking, self-congratulatory youngsters stumbling through this tedious flick while posing as unbelievable, wannabe-frivolous good-for-nothings. In case you're attracted to "Gib Gas, ich will Spass" featuring German pop star Nena, go ahead and give it a try. Otherwise, hit your favorite bar and meet your friends over a beer.
