An employee at a professional separation agency, a business that helps couples break up, Paul tries to tackle the problems that come with Toto, the boyfriend of a customer, while he has his own thinking to do about love and relationships.
The main tune of the movie's score is based on Hape Kerkeling's 1991-hit "Das ganze Leben ist ein Quiz" (The whole life is a quiz), written by him, his back-then life partner Angelo Colagrossi and his old friend Achim Hagemann. The song itself is based on the 1988 song "Sì la vita è tutta un quiz" by Renzo Arbore. See more »

I saw this movie because I was trapped in a plane for 12 hours, I had heard about the book and I had made a tiny portion of the Jacob's Way myself.
This is a tourist movie: locals and locations are just a nice background and shown stereotypically. Noone is really involved besides the pilgrims, nothing is explained about the places they visit and their culture. Don't expect tips and hints, in case you want to do the Jacob's Way yourself.
It's sold as a comedy, but beyond the typical German jokes (tooth falling, guy falling) there is nothing really laughable about this drama of a mother who lost her daughter and just wanders around in her middle-aged crazyness.
But the worst part is of course the moralistic tale of New Age people rediscovering the catholic faith, through penitence and abstinence. Recommendable if you are trapped in a plane for 12 hours, can't sleep and there is nothing else in the movie catalog.
