The festival ground, which is supposed to be near Paderborn in Western Germany, is located in the former eastern part of Germany: In the background, one can see a level crossing signal for a railway line, which is clearly of the typical old GDR type. See more »
A nice and heartful relation drama between two brothers
It's always nice, when dramas don't get too cheesy. This is about two brothers of different attitudes colliding 30 years after they spiltted up. They re-united at their father's funeral. One is an international manager, tied to a tied scedule with many communication over smartphone. He left home early because of the home situation. The other is a craftsman, leading a carpenter's workshop. After taking several drinks and some psychological obstacles, the two brothers start a journey on their lower motorbikes they had when they were fifteen and experience each other new. The best on this movie is, that it doesn't become too cheesy and had some fine moments, but also some comedic. This is no movie with big secial effects, but it takes some heart to watch it. No stuff for people searching for action, scifi, pure comedy, crime, thrillers, and many other genres. I voted it 7/10, because it's sure not the peak of filmhistory, but it's a solid drama with heart and it's sometimes a little bit silly, but close enough to reality to be enlighted with that brother's story. It's one of the better German movies.
