Storyline

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 fippi2000

great movie
2 August 2006 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

it was a big deal to go into the sneak preview tonight! if you're able to understand the Bavarian way of life then you'll probably love that film. The Bavarian Dialect is great! Thanks therefor! Summary: A young boy wants to know how to become immortal. his brother accounts him guilty for the dead of their mother and so the young boy is searching for a way how he can even make her mother immortal although she's dead for a long time. there a many of funny scenes which make you laugh throughout the whole movie! although the topic is rather earnestly, the director showed the whole story in a funny way. one more thing: this shows reminds how blissfully ignorant people are about death.
