Storyline

In rural Westphalia, Franz Berger struggles to keep his inn open. On this day, a bluff, overbearing bully, Hermann Walzer, has booked the dining room for a wedding banquet for his son Mark. There's bad blood between Berger and Walzer, so when the first course, shrimp cocktail, is off, Hermann storms out with the wedding party vowing not to pay. Franz locks the loo door, taking prisoners of the bride and Hermann's wife while he also locks the estate's outer gates, leaving Hermann and the rest outside. Walzer, a pheasant hunter, lays siege; shotguns, rifles, grenades, a shovel, and other weapons leave no one safe. Will it take death to bring these men to their senses?

A nightmare on wedding-street!
30 January 2006 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

I've seen many good movies but this one was really great. Armin Rohde plays the role of the rich man who doesn't know a words like "unsuccesful" or "no" so realistic that he really scared me. I mean who goes for a hunt after church on his way to his own son's wedding dinner. The hole film is really funny as long as you know that your own father or stepfather doesn't look OR act like the character Armin Rohde plays.

The conflicts in the film don't seem unrealistic. The setting, the hotel and restaurant, are wonderful. The actors fulfill their roles in a way that is not too soap- or sitcom-like and once again it is a pity that most German movies are not translated into English.

If you liked "Meet the Fockers" you will like that one too.
