The obscure philosopher Georg Hermes almost withdrew from the world to concentrate on his studies, especially Heraclitus, having no relationship since his mother's death. When he wants a new suit for a lecture (actually very minor) about his new book, he meets the sisters Franziska, Breate and Marthe, who run a boutique, share a house and have a lover each. Those invite Georg to dinner, Franziska even on dates. Falling off a boat he gets naked with her, and they become lovers. The girls all take to Hermes and get him to move in, spoiled by all and offered polygamy. Written by
In the absence of any other reviews or comments whatsoever, thought I should throw in my two cents worth.
Saw this movie in its first run in London around 1990. Must have been fairly good as I still remember scenes now, 12 years on. At the time, I was doing a Ph.D in philosophy so that may have been part of my reason for noticing the film. It's about a boring, nerdy academic type who publishes a text on Heraclitus and somehow attracts the attention of three attractive women who may or may not be actual muses. It's a little slow and humorless at times (it is German, you know), but overall a decent flick. Worth a viewing.
