Entertaining but touching story of three people and an abandoned baby
17 June 2001 | by (Cambridge, England) – See all my reviews

Brothers Arne (Matthias Koeberlin) and Malte (Matthias Schweighöfer) scratch a marginal living running a car breaking business in Hamburg.

One day Malte finds an abandoned baby; he wants to look after it while they find the Mother, but Arne doesn't like the idea, and only goes along with it grudgingly.

Eventually they find the Mother, Belinda (Marek Harloff), working in a clip joint in the red light district, and Arne falls in love with her. They decide to work on Belinda to get her to take the baby back, and they give her a job as a nanny to it.

The scheme works in part, but when the boys decide to bring things to a head by saying that they are going to put the baby in an orphanage, Belinda runs away with the baby.

Congratulating themselves on the success of their scheme, the boys are dismayed when more information emerges about Belinda.

Despite some improbable plot elements I found the film both moving and entertaining.

The title means "Baby Business is a Man's Thing"
