| gay man returns home for mother and may find love with youngster
The film focuses mainly on the dynamic between an elderly ailing mother and her gay son who returns back home to Switzerland from Germany to take care of her. Love comes a knocking on the door for the male protagonist in the process, but that plot line doesn't get much exposure, which is a shame - because I found those scenes most intriguing of all.

The family drama takes up too much time for my liking; its storyline is drawn out much too extensively. At some stage I was telling myself "get on with it, where has the cute young love / lust interest gone?"

Nevertheless I enjoyed most of the film. The beautiful scenery of rural Switzerland translates very well on camera, and perhaps it is implied to be a purifying influence on the slightly jaded gay protagonist who appears to have been emotionally hardened by Berlin. The Swiss German accent is a joy to listen to as well. There is also a fair amount of humour, mostly played out by the raucous mother, but even her spiel gets a bit wearing in the end.
