The film was shot during an actual concert tour in small to medium-sized clubs in Germany. The gigs were announced under the title "Grand Hotel van Cleef-Night" with the surprise band "Hansen". The concert audience knew nothing in advance about the film project and Jürgen Vogel being the singer. See more »

Not only filmed in a sort-of documentary manner, but also played accordingly very well (except for maybe one scene, in which breaking up is the major topic). The story may not be too inventive, but the manner of presenting it makes the movie worth watching. The facts, that all concerts were set up in a realistic environment with people not knowing that they went to a movie shooting and that the band members are actually not actors give it an authentic atmosphere. The dialogs are quite entertaining, because a lot of clichés about men and women and their relationships are picked up in a humorous way. Men are fallible - don't we all agree on that ;) Heike Makatsch is great, and so are Juergen Vogel and Florian Lukas. It's almost like meeting friends from my own past. Having lived in a town on the German coast for several years, I also like the scene with the lonely sailor. Was he an actor or a real German sailor?
