Synopsis by Sandra Brennan
The tangled webs woven by four deceivers provide the basis of this provocative Swiss-Austrian comedy. The four protagonists met while taking a vacation language class in Italy. Following the class, they return to their disparate lives. Bruno, a schoolteacher, only sees his family on weekends. This is unsatisfactory to Claudia, his partner who desires more stability and begins looking for a different lover. Then there is Barbara, a medical student who simultaneously juggles two relationships between Erich, her lover in the city, and Hubert, her longtime boyfriend back home, while trying to write her dissertation. Bruno is still in love with Beatrice who is trying to help her lover Nora accept her endeavors to have a baby. Finally there is the troublesome pathological liar Max who has come to visit Barbara and has stayed to sponge off her hospitality. Ironically it is he who exposes the deceptions of the other four.
