Synopsis by Dan Pavlides
Paul Winkleman (Loriot) is a middle-aged merchant of upholstery who is continually controlled by his elderly mother (Katharina Brauren). He falls for Margarethe (Evelyn Hamann), a drab clinical psychologist his own age with her own issues of controlling parents. The two nerds begin a tenuous and sometimes nerve-wracking courtship.
