best German comedy in years
Saw this movie at the AFM. In my eyes, this is one of the best German comedies in years and it didn't surprise me to learn that this has become a big box office hit over there. Did not expect much cause the clumsy teutonic sense of humor usually is not my thing at all. But this movie feels rather "ungerman" as it is truly charming and witty and thoroughly well written and acted. The scenes are hysterical, but always remain realistic. Mannerherzen (male hearts) tells the stories of five guys going to the same gym in Berlin,with everyone trying to be a real man in his life and no one really having a clue what that actually means in our day and age. Their quests for happiness and romance are told from a strictly male point of view, which makes this comedy less corny and somewhat more edgy than the usual variations. The English title "men in the city" i find a bit misleading as this is not in the vain of the "sex in the city" movies. It feels less glossy and polished and more original and real, much more like "swingers". Definitely worth checking out.
