This also gave him the nickname "Simpel". But even if Simpel is a terrible nuisance, Ben can never imagine a life without his brother. But then the fate unexpectedly kills cruelly when her mother suddenly dies. Afterwards, Simpel is to be sent to a home, but the brothers do not allow that.

This story of one brother -Ben- caring for his handicaped brother -Simple- touched me much more than expected. Ben invests his whole life into his brother, which is really heart touching. You as the audiance want to see him to succed, see a happy end. You want to see that the father, who left the family, is wrong. But it is not as simple like that. Simple should get the best available chance to live a good life. But is it his brothers Ben life-goal to give up his own life for Simple?
A clear recommandation from my side. Good Story, very good acting, well choosen music and definitly something you can take with you when you get out of the theatre
