You are never to old to life your dreams
21 March 2007 | by schwachkopfSee all my reviews

I had seen this movie in a preview and was really surprised. I had never expected, that the Switzerland make good movies.

The eighty years old Martha is sad and don't want to life anymore as her husband died. She decided to open a lingerie-boutique (a dream she gave up as she had married her husband) in her small village in Switzerland. The problem is, that her son is the vicar of the village. But with her friends she fights against the resistance.

A really really funny movie.

When you see it you know: The oldest are the goldest!!!

An absolutely feel good movie!
