Some movie series do let up at some point, but this one seems to be on a good way to keep going. Even if you may be a bit fed up about yet another romantic kerkuffle. It's not the same confusion as the times before, but there is tension again between the lovers and it's another indecision by our main character that makes that happen.
But if you are invested into the characters (and there may not be as much detail or depth to some of them, like the brother or the friends, as in some of the previous entries), you will absolutely love this. Quirks and craziness ensue and you will be interested in yet another outcome ... and we want more. So while I haven't read any of the novels this is based on yet, I hope there is more to come. German cinema and cinema overall needs great oddities like this!
