Majas and Uwes relationship is stuck in the daily routine. Their marriage is infested with monotony. Quite contrary to Alina, their lovestruck daughter, who calls for an encounter of her and her boyfriend Nicos family. Badly prepared they start off to a place in Brandenburg, unaware of an unpleasant surprise. A secret affair disturbs the alleged harmony of two couples.Written by
I recommend. This is an excellent German movie available on Netflix. Drama with elements of comedy or comedy with elements of drama? In my view it is the latter. Two couples go through mid-life crisis/ married life boredom. Their paths cross unexpectedly. Many truly hilarious moments will keep you entertained. The acting is excellent. There no "scenes" that usually present in this kind of movies (Hollywood). It is a calm and humorous reflection of unexpected encounter. The portrayal of a married life routine is so accurate and hilarious at the same time. Nobody knows why they do what they do, they just do it to break a routine and boredom.
