Storyline

Its a story about a special love, the love between TILDA and her grandfather AMANDUS. Amandus has Alzheimers. He always was the bon vivant, the humorous and beloved head of the family now he starts acting like a child. Only the ten year old Tilda can deal with him and his disease she looks at it with the eyes of a child and a kind of humour and sensitivity that makes it easier to approach Amandus when he is lost in his new own world. This special connection approaches the disease in a humorous but emotional way, without forgetting about its tragedy.

Seriously? As if...
17 August 2015 | by minerva-88-89480See all my reviews

...as if a dementia patient can give funny replies.... ...as if a dementia patient without a clue just do things - like making coffee, clipping the hedge.... ...as if a dementia patient really have remorse... ...as if a dementia patient understands (subtle) humour... as if...I could go on.

The film crew has no idea what it's like to care for a patient with dementia, to live with that person, to master everyday life. Alzheimer has been glorified lately. That's not right. I like the idea of awareness but not glorification.

The portrait family is naive and reckless. There is nothing funny about ignorant behaviour.

The only highlight of that movie is the pediatrician, explaining what Alzheimer is like, what the patient truly needs....

My resume, disappointing like most German movies. It's all about sex....just sex.
