If you want to laught and cry at the same time ,watch this movie
13 January 2019 | by sebnemleventSee all my reviews

It's more then a well known German comedian biography. It's a movie who reminds us how beautiful it is to be surrounded by family.The support and emotions to eachother in laughter and in difficult times like when you lose someone in your family. A movie which reminds us what it means to grow up with a family who is there for you and doesn't treat you like a child but like a person who can raise his voice and show his feelings without having fear . Please watch this movie. I hope that it will be able to watch all non-german speakers aswell.
