Janek Rieke wrote, directed, and stars in this German romantic comedy about loser Jonas ($Rieke), a 26-year-old with allergies who still lives with his parents, wealthy from their oil-tanker business. Jonas falls for eco-oriented bicycle courier Lena (Lisa Martinek), who tells him she will only sleep with him after seeing proof that he's not a wimp -- but then tensions erupt when an oil tanker disaster leads to her discovery of his father's profession. Shown at the 1998 Berlin Film Festival.
