Storyline

Nick Keller has issues in keeping a job. In this first day as a janitor at a mental hospital he gets fired. However, it is then when he meets Leila, a troubled young woman that doesn't wear any shoes, and prevents her from hanging herself. What he wouldn't expect, though, is for Leila to follow him home, which she does. She then refuses to leave his apartment and go back to the hospital. As Leila has been kept away from the world and the society, Nick engages into showing the world to the strange new girl. While trying not to lose his patience, he ends up falling for Leila.

Best Til Schweiger movie ever and an excellent love story...
26 May 2005 | by movie-miguelSee all my reviews

I didn't have so much fun watching a love comedy for a long time (maybe after "When Harry met Sally") as this film has it all: very interesting plot, excellent and funny dialogs and scenes, top-notch acting and... this "something", this thing that makes it a film you want to watch several times and you're never bored with.

Til Schweiger is at his best (OK, I am a Til Schweiger fan, but in this one he's just awesome), Johanna Wokalek is sooo charming that it's just a pleasure to watch her.

I'm normally not writing just positives about a movie... but this one has simply bought me - I've enjoyed it so much that I can't find anything that distracted me from one of the best movie experiences ever.

If you live outside of Germany (like I do), either on your visit to this country get yourself a ticket in a movie theater (like I did), or just wait for it on DVD. This one's worth it.
