Notoriously hip Berlin based hairdresser Tom Herzner falls in love with beauty parlor owner Heidi, turning both of their worlds upside down. So far so good. Only one problem: Tom is gay.

Storyline

Tom Herzner, 30, is the hair stylist for men in Berlin. He's attractive, glamorous, runs a posh salon and is an openly gay celebrity who is seen as a role model for the gay community. But when he plans his first hair-product line, the cosmetic company rep gets jittery: he feels that just targeting men is too restrictive. What about women? To get an idea of what women want, Tom is forced to work incognito at a hair salon-cum-barber-shop somewhere in an edgy Berlin neighborhood run by the sassy, gut-honest Heidi.

Poor repetition of the perfect version of 1997
23 May 2017 | by See all my reviews

With much good will 6 out of 10. Why so strict? Because the film already exists and in a much better version. The film with the same title from 1997 with Steffen Wink, Franka Potente, etc. is simply incomparably better, more credible, more witty/fun, and more charming. The rating 6 out of 10 is because the performers try hard, however, they can't do much against the partly much too exaggerated characters (Didi, Sam - who came up with the idea to disfigure handsome Bruno Eyron? - , even Tom, and even small roles like the unnecessarily nasty taxi driver), moreover, Aylin Tetzel is lacking charm, which F. Potente had tons of in the first movie (without exaggerating and without having to bring on a severely sick granny), and Ken Duken -although having a great talent- is completely not credible as a homosexual. If you steal everything, from the title to the idea to the story down to almost every detail from the first version, you should improve it/add something. However, since the first attempt was already perfect and not that old/outdated that a modernization was mandatory, one can only say: hands off of this bad copy and choose the wonderful original instead. If you do not get enough of the idea, you can consider this second attempt as a supplement, but do not expect it to be as great as the first one. It's a nice idea, but this version here is only a lukewarm repetition - well-meant 6 points for that, just because the idea is so nice, but it would have definitely deserved a better execution, even for the second time around.
