Storyline

The life of a Jazzplayer: Teddy Schu (Helge Schneider) loves Jazz and plays nightly in a small pub with his two friends. Sadly, there is no audience and the owner can't pay them anything for their music. Hence Teddy has to work 3 jobs to satisfy his grumpy wife. In the evenings he always finds a minute to sit with a homeless and nameless friend underneath the bridge and wonder about life and the legendary Jazz player Earl Mobileh. Jazz meets Dada!

Life ain't easy for a guy named Shu
29 January 2008 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

Selling someone else's fish by day and his own scrawny body by night, Teddy Shu (Helge Schneider) is working a total of four jobs to make a meager living. Most every day, he drives and runs the dingy "Happy Fish" panel van for a bunch of exploitative capitalists while his lazy girlfriend (Susanne Bredehöft) is having late breakfasts and killing time at Professor Henry's shady mental practice. Come rain or shine, he also delivers newspapers in the middle of the night. At all hours, he makes house calls in the guise of cranky boy toy Rodriguez Faszanata, catering to single ladies and couples alike. Despite all his hard work, Teddy is only one step up the social ladder from a nameless street salesman peddling bulk-stock band aid. After dark, Teddy jams at a dingy club with his friends, getting paid in preserved plums rather than cash. But he's in it for the fun. Things go from bad to worse when the innkeeper (Horst Mendroch) dies and the club closes down. But even in his darkest hour, there is a ray of light as Teddy finds out who the quiet homeless person he passes every night *really* is. Solid gold for lovers of jazz and flub-dub alike.
