Marcus H. Rosenmüller's first feature movie deals with a boy thinking that he is responsible for his mother's death and his unusual way to fight his feelings of guilt. 11-year-old Sebastian lives with his father and brother Franz in a Bavarian village. One day, he learns that his mother died on his birthday, which makes him believe he was to blame for her death. Dreaming of purgatory, Sebastian sees only two ways to avoid this divine punishment: becoming an immortal rock star or find a new wife for his father... Written by
I really enjoyed this movie, because it made me laugh so hard even though the subject of the movie could be considered quite serious. But the way the little boy deals with his fear of going to hell after he dies is just hilarious. And it might not be the most realistic or sophisticated German movie that has ever been done, but if you want to hear Bavarians swear and argue and have a great time, this is the movie you should watch! The movie is about an 11 years old boy living somewhere in the Bavarian countryside together with his brother and father, who runs the local "Gasthaus". The boy is (what you would call) quite a brat. When he accidentally kills 3 of his brothers rabbits, his brother tells him that he will go to hell after he dies, because of all the sins he has committed, especially because he "killed" his mother, who died at his birth 11 years ago. In order to redeem his sins, he seeks advice from the local men, who always hang around at the Gasthaus, but also from the priest, his teacher and the radio host.
Very funny (if you understand the strong Bavarian accent)!!!
