Mutter Muss Weg

TV-Movie | DE 2012 | 89' | OV

Since his childhood Tristan has suffered from his overbearing mother. Now he’s coming up on the midlife crisis and the monster is still running his life. And when she dismisses his newest business idea to sell custom made doll houses, enough is enough – it’s fortunate that Tristan happens to meet hired killer Josip. But the old dragon turns out to be much harder to get rid of than Tristan had ever expected… and just then there are also amorous entanglements that distract him. Brilliant comedian Bastian Pastewka and acting legend Judy Winter go toe-to-toe in this murderously funny comedy that start with hurt feelings and develops to inflict some rather more substantial hurting. Cult screenwriter Marc Terjung and director Edward Berger deliver an uninterrupted string of hair-raising set-pieces and absurd twists and turns, just to go all out in the end with a grand finale the likes of which have never before been seen on German TV. A pitch-black piece of fun for the bold and reckless.
