Storyline

An original satire about women of the 90s in search of the men of their dreams. Franzy believes she's through with men, but desperately needs new amorous story lines for the comic strip she writes for a newspaper. So she observes her friend Maischa struggling to satisfy her need for love -- and someone who knows how to install her new shelf. Since joiner Klaus demands too much attention, she sets her eyes on the good-looking footballer Rene. Written by Tom Zoerner <Tom.Zoerner@informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

Short but nice movie
6 January 2001 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

Katja Riemann plays the cool woman that doesn´t need a man and her friend (Nina Kronjäger) adores the beautiful Gedeon Burkhard. Katja has to show Gedeon´s American friend (who she doesn´t like at first) the town while Gedeon has a date with Nina. But sex with the selfish Gedeon ends in disaster and Katja falls in love with Max (who plays the perfect American guy as Germans think Americans are - with chewing gum in the mouth and always a cheeky word on the lip). I think this movie tries to explain what love really means: not only beauty is decisive, most important is to understand your partner and to have fun together. For a German movie it is really good.
