Coming In (2014)

Notoriously hip Berlin based hairdresser Tom Herzner falls in love with beauty parlor owner Heidi, turning both of their worlds upside down. So far so good. Only one problem: Tom is gay.

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.

User Reviews

Romeo&Juliet-like drama
13 August 2015 | by ivoschwieteSee all my reviews

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
