Storyline

In rural Westphalia, Franz Berger struggles to keep his inn open. On this day, a bluff, overbearing bully, Hermann Walzer, has booked the dining room for a wedding banquet for his son Mark. There's bad blood between Berger and Walzer, so when the first course, shrimp cocktail, is off, Hermann storms out with the wedding party vowing not to pay. Franz locks the loo door, taking prisoners of the bride and Hermann's wife while he also locks the estate's outer gates, leaving Hermann and the rest outside. Walzer, a pheasant hunter, lays siege; shotguns, rifles, grenades, a shovel, and other weapons leave no one safe. Will it take death to bring these men to their senses?

a very bloody wedding, good actors and much fun!
19 April 2005 | by tomyflSee all my reviews

"Die Bluthochzeit" makes us remember, that the German cinema can produce very dramatic and funny comedies. It tells the story of a young man, who wants to marry his great love. His father organizes a wedding party at an hotel, which he wants to buy. But the owner doesn't want to sell it. That's why the father cancels the party. Then he doesn't want to pay for the meal, because it doesn't taste perfectly. That's why the owner locks the toilet, while the wife is cleaning her skirt, there. Now he has two "hostages". This is the beginning of a war between a family and a matron of a hotel and his barkeeper.

Its a very funny movie and i would advise to watch it!
