Männerherzen is an excellent comedy about men and their struggles in life and love. The dialogue is first rate with some really memorable oneliners, some scenes are incredibly funny, others touching and emotional, a really exceptional mix of moods and feelings. For me this is one of the few German movies that was really worth going to the movie theatre for. Justus Dohnanyi gives an amazing performance as the German "Schmaltz" popstar Bruce Berger, who sings these horrible, sappy songs about saving the earth. His scenes are sensationally funny, but also equally tragic and i hope this guy wins some award for his crazy performance here. But all the other actors were outstanding too, their timing is right on the money and even though some scenes are rather over the top, the acting isn't. I have never seen Til Schweiger, the German megastar, as good as in this movie.
