Storyline

The gym "Fitnessworld" is where we meet our fighting gladiators - the protagonists of our episodic daisy chain about what it means to be a man. Philipp is a loveably chaotic fellow, whose professional dreams have just fallen apart. And when his casual girlfriend Nina informs him she's pregnant, Philipp is truly in over his head. His friend Niklas, though, has done everything right - always: university, marriage, single-family home. But is he happy? This question doesn't even occur to heart-throb Jerome - His life is one sensual rush. And then there's Günther, the lonely trade inspector desperately seeking someone to belong to; and the abandoned subway driver Roland, fighting with all his might to get his family back. Many "male truths" - all searching for the right "design" for their lives, in this time of lacking orientation, where a MAN can be whatever he wants. They're all fighting for happiness. Who will come out ahead? Written by Wiedemann & Berg Film

best German comedy in years
7 December 2009 | by alinamorrisSee all my reviews

Saw this movie at the AFM. In my eyes, this is one of the best German comedies in years and it didn't surprise me to learn that this has become a big box office hit over there. Did not expect much cause the clumsy teutonic sense of humor usually is not my thing at all. But this movie feels rather "ungerman" as it is truly charming and witty and thoroughly well written and acted. The scenes are hysterical, but always remain realistic. Mannerherzen (male hearts) tells the stories of five guys going to the same gym in Berlin,with everyone trying to be a real man in his life and no one really having a clue what that actually means in our day and age. Their quests for happiness and romance are told from a strictly male point of view, which makes this comedy less corny and somewhat more edgy than the usual variations. The English title "men in the city" i find a bit misleading as this is not in the vain of the "sex in the city" movies. It feels less glossy and polished and more original and real, much more like "swingers". Definitely worth checking out.
