Apart from the inciting incident (it's far fetched to say the least how our two main characters meet, but even more so what makes them bond together), the movie is pretty decent. It's a German comedy (most movies produced here will either be comedy or drama, but any starring Schweighöfer is very likely to be a common comedy), but it does actually seem to care about the characters in it.

The dialogs are decent enough, the characters feel real (as real as possible that is) and especially our older female actress is very good. We know where this is heading (no pun intended), but it's still kinda fun to watch.
