Three brothers, a cook, an author and a convict, reunite to look for their father after their mother dies in Germany. Soon they realize that they know less about their mother (and have less in common) than they had thought.
This movie is said to be a comedy about a man going through a mid-life crisis. It's true he's a guitar-playing loser. Nothing goes right for him. Alfred Dorfer in the lead role has a certain roguish charm and he delivers his lines well with an unusually dry wit. In one scene his partner discovers a stain on an upholstered lounge. Jumping to the conclusion that he has enjoyed another woman in her absence, she trashes everything in the apartment. The room is a complete mess. When he comes in he asks: "Have you been looking for something?"That's about the standard of the humour throughout. To be honest, I couldn't raise a laugh. This is one film that isn't worth a replay. Indeed, if you haven't seen it yet, don't bother.
