Storyline

Thomas, a successful lawyer, is happily married with two children, but has an affair. His mistress wants a child from him - without any obligations - and although he agrees to "do it", it doesn't work out. After having a test, he is told that he can't have children - ever. But what about the kids he already has?? Thomas seeks advice from his brother, who happens to be a minister. Written by Thomas Meyer <i03a@zfn.uni-bremen.de>

At times funny and original, otherwise pretty straight German romantic comedy with uneven direction and script, but a fine cast and a promising premise, which unfortunately doesn't pay off the it should've. However, Herbert Knaup is superb in the lead as well as surprisingly beautiful, charming and attractive Corinna Harfouch as his wife, and an even better supporting cast with director Dominik Graf as a blind man and Axel Milberg as a mental patient. Good fun, but not great.
