homo-hetero comedy
29 May 2019 | by LentilSoupSee all my reviews

This is a comedy about a young man (Riemelt) who falls in love with a beautiful young woman (Traue) who he instantly regards as the woman of his dreams by the standards he has set up over the years, but who turns out to be the lover of his lesbian mother (Flint). Things get still more complicated when mom wants her young lad to donate sperm for that very lover of hers so that she can bear a child. The setting doesn't appear realistic at all, but it might make a plot for a comedy, yet it doesn't really play out that well. There are shortcomings in the story and the directing. The cinematography isn't always high quality and seems to have been subject to budget restrictions, and the music also appears at times arbitrary. The acting is quite good but actors Riemelt and Bauer aren't optimally cast since they aren't really funny and lack the talent for comedy. Hence some scenes that ought to be funny come across as rather wooden. I am not convinced on recommending the movie.
