Tragic comedy about a failed family in post-unification Berlin
This little German gem tells the story of a father-son relationship. Marcel is an east German electrician who couldn't cope with the difficulties of market economics after the German reunification and who spends his day in between a vietnamese snack bar and his shabby apartment. When his son Sebastian who lived the last three years with his mother returns for a place to stay his life is given new direction. Filmed on a shoestring budget for a university assignment this movie makes you laugh where you should cry, depicting the hardships of those who where the losers of the German reunification. Not to miss. During an interview after the screening the director pointed out that he considers this a regional movie. I think however it has universal appeal as that type of biographies exist everywhere.
