Dieter Wedel should forget about creating mafia pics. for he is famous or anything else with shady characters, he is a master of the romantic comedy and drama! "Papa and Mama" is as good as it gets for a n y TV mini series. Wounderful and original characters, set in a serious but not hopeless situation - modern day divorce. The individual situations are plausible, make you cry, laugh, and wonder... Wedels direction is rather elegant, feature film like, no hard cuts, or funny angles. He gives his story time to evolve, to go deep into the characters, to let the audience go under the sheets. Needless to say the actors do the rest, everyone a surprise, but that is on of Wedels trademarks. Toping the mini is a wonderful, always at ease, camera, and an exceptional soundtrack of classic 60s Hollywood songs. If you missed it, get the DVD or watch a rerun, which the ZDF will definitely do any year, for the next eight to come.
