Luise is kind of a chaotic woman who lives alone with her son Arthur. She's always on the edge, but that's nothing compared to what happens when her sister Jeanette asks her to do her shifts as a nurse, because she has severe problems with her lover she needs to take care of. Suddenly the juvenile welfare office is interested in Luise's competence as a mother and as if that were not enough, Arthur runs away to find out about who his real father is. Arthur tries to hire Lucky, a private-detective, but gets rejected and now tries to investigate on his own. Meanwhile Luise tries to find out where Arthur has gone and the juvenile welfare office sends the police after Luise. Written by Oliver Heidelbach

The format "Child looks for father and husband for its unmarried mother" was very popular in the 50's, but after 40 years the only innovation seems to be that the independent and emancipated mother just is not capable enough to quite manage on her own and the right and ideal husband is needed to make the woman's life complete and less a chaos. Moreover, how many of these middle-class emancipation comedies have already been made along the more or less same lines in the 90's? Ad nauseam I think.

Both Veronica Ferres and Jan Josef Lievens save this film from being crushed by all the cliches of the formula. There are some funny (and one very good) visual jokes, but they are few and far between. What could have been a hilarious leading thread - the man who is constantly being beaten up by the Ferres' character - more or less fizzles out. The film is not helped much by average direction; see this one only when you can really spare the time.
