Men

Posted on

Doris Dorrie’s amusing farce about the foibles of those fools known as Men is refreshing: a feminist jab but with affection for its subjects. When a German advertising executive’s wife (Ulrike Kriener) takes a bohemian lover (Uwe Ochsenknecht), her husband (Heiner Lauterbach) tries to get her back by becoming the boho’s roomie. When they begin switching identities like ties, the two actors make being sweetly clumsy and disarmingly charming look as easy as shaving.
