Witty dialog and subtle humor
28 September 2000 | by cengelmSee all my reviews

Loriot(Vicco von Bülow) is possibly Germany's most wellknown comedian if we consider his comic books, his TV shows and his 2 films. His Prussian humor is unique and he prefers to be the pedantic gentleman who often struggles with tiny "errors" in his environment. "Pappa ante Portas" is the better of his 2 films where he plays a married man who disturbs his family because of his early retirement. Once again excellent his all time female companion Evelyn Hamann who plays his wife.

Overall rating: 9 (among the 5 best comedies of the 90s)
