Storyline

Paul (Matthias Schweighöfer) is the Break-up man. He works for a Berlin based Break-up Agency that offers the service of conveying the news of their client's need to break-up to their future Ex-Partners. Yeah, it does get emotional - - But Paul is used to it by now; He never takes work home and cautiously keeps his girlfriend Natalie (Catherine de Léan) at arm's length. On one of his assignments he breaks the news to Toto (Milan Peschel) a sensitive, clingy guy, who can't accept his girlfriend Kati (Nadja Uhl) wanting to break up. Toto attaches himself to the messenger Paul and follows him on his "business trip", which takes them crisscrossing around Germany. Soon Toto's presence jeopardizes not only Paul's job but also Paul's very own Happy End with Natalie.

19 March 2019 | by zutterjp48See all my reviews

"Schlussmacher" is a good German comedy about divorces , marriages and love., with his dramatic moments but also some funny moments. The idea of a separation agency is quite original. The cast is good: Matthias has become a very popular actor,the other actors and actresses are also well known in Germany.
