A nice bedtime story, but not much more
1 November 2005 | by See all my reviews

Lena, a young lady from Munich, Bavaria, begins to manage the run-down bakery of her aunt in Berlin. She only has one employee, Donald. He persuades her to specialize on holiday cakes - with some success. Now Laurens enters the scene. He and his fiancée want to buy the bakery to convert it to a fast-food-style café. Lena does not want to sell out - especially after she has an affair with Laurens and discovers that he is engaged - and financially dependent on his future father-in law. After getting turned down Laurens behaves like a stalker, because he desperately wants Lena, her bakery or preferably both. His fiancée soon throws him out. The only reasonable person is Donald, because he is openly gay and the only person who can watch the affair between Lena and Laurens from a neutral point of view and his advice are not influenced by jealousy.

The end somehow does not fit into the rest of the film - but it still remains a nice bedtime story.

Watchers with a good memory might recognize some ideas from "Das Brot des Bäckers" or "Beim nächsten Mann wird alles anders."
