Pappa Ante Portas is a movie,you can watch over and over again and you´ll still love it.I´ve seen it about 10 times and I´m still rolling on the floor laughing.Loriot really has a wonderful way of humour and the movie is full of little details and intelligently made background gags. Apart from that,the acting is absolutely superb.Loriot and Evelyne Hamann really make the best(and the funniest) out of their characters! The best thing is,that the situations are very near to the real life and totally weird at the same time. This film is full of strange but wonderful humour and I recommend to everyone who wants to see some intelligent comedy. This movie is nothing for fans of no-brainer-flicks!
