A charming love story in the good old Bayern
16 June 2012 | by (Switzerland) – See all my reviews

I missed the movie the first time on TV (on SAT1) but saw it shortly because I like very much handsome actor Manuel Witting (which comes from the famous Austrian actor Dynasty Hörbiger) who's playing Nikki.

I must say, this movie was funny and very charming and lives totally with their actors: Saskia Vester, Jürgen Tonkel and you may don't believe it: Jenny Elvers-Elbertzhagen who I call more a IT-girl than a actress. But she did really a great job here.

The story is playing in "Bayern", which is catholic are and conservative. The truth is, at this time when the movie was made, in 2009 it was already allowed for gay people to marry in Bayern.

The acting is great. It was funny but not overloaded or made into slapstick. Its a romantic, funny and heartbreaking Love Story. Specially then in the final scene when actress/comedian Franziska Traub is singing "All You need is love" together with the citizen of village.

Franziska Traub is a "Geheimtip" in this movie.

Fazit: very well and charming made!! And I guess there is a question: Is Manuel Witting gay or not? Answer: NO! He's just a great actor and is married in the real life and has a child!
