Storyline

An original satire about women of the 90s in search of the men of their dreams. Franzy believes she's through with men, but desperately needs new amorous story lines for the comic strip she writes for a newspaper. So she observes her friend Maischa struggling to satisfy her need for love -- and someone who knows how to install her new shelf. Since joiner Klaus demands too much attention, she sets her eyes on the good-looking footballer Rene. Written by Tom Zoerner <Tom.Zoerner@informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

German romantic comedy - American style
12 November 1999 | by SkaVengerSee all my reviews

I haven't seen many german movies but 'Widows' came to my mind when I was watching this one, both have female characters for leads but is actually about men.

We all have seen this before many times, some like it and some don't. I gave it a 6.
