This film is light-hearted, innocent fun, with the familiar moral of the importance of thinking with your heart and not your head. Arrogant young entrepreneur and economics student Ben Raabe wants to sell off the ailing family business to a large corporation. When his father gets wind of his plans, he throws his son out of the firm. With no money, his fiancée ditches him, his friends ignore him and he ends up on a charge of drink driving. Things could not get much worse until a run-in with the idealistic Maria. Maria runs a furniture workshop, employs the disabled and ex-cons, but her business is rapidly running out of money... The lead actor, Matthias Koeberlin is fantastic and is also great eye candy and Stefanie Stappenbeck as Maria does well in a sober role. It's an enthusiastic, and slick, if predictable film and you pretty much know how things will end up. But of course, with this kind of film it is always about the journey rather than the destination - both characters grow and learn through each other's perspectives and it's enjoyable to watch their interaction.
