Tom Herzner, 30, is the hair stylist for men in Berlin. He's attractive, glamorous, runs a posh salon and is an openly gay celebrity who is seen as a role model for the gay community. But when he plans his first hair-product line, the cosmetic company rep gets jittery: he feels that just targeting men is too restrictive. What about women? To get an idea of what women want, Tom is forced to work incognito at a hair salon-cum-barber-shop somewhere in an edgy Berlin neighborhood run by the sassy, gut-honest Heidi.
First of all, I can't agree with the 5,5 voting I've just read here. I've been complaining about 95% of German movies, but this one stands out and, in my opinion, comes close to a Hollywood standard because it moved me to tears.
I therefore wouldn't call it comedy but drama. It has parts of Romeo & Juliet, with a love between two "worlds" (gay and hetero) that seems to stand above the characters who just fell in love.
The gay star barber -who is in a successful relationship with his business partner- falls in love with a female Barber while promoting his own hair product line. His own gay friends go against him as they've become as excluding to heterosexuals as they've experienced "the others" themselves.
In a nutshell: I'm neither into homosexual-oriented or love movies, but I'm loving this one. Watch it
