All You Need Is Love 2009
All You Need is Love: Meine Schwiegertochter ist ein Mann (original title)
1h 32min | Comedy , Drama , Romance | TV Movie 3 November 2009
Young man returns to his hometown to marry his male partner, while family and neighbors deal with the news.
I like the characters especially and the fact that they look and remind you of real people you might actually have known at one point in your life. The gay couple are good looking but still guys you might know. The movie made me laugh it’s witty and a bit sarcastic. (You’ll notice it right off the bat when the guy wearing the shirt that says “Brain Power” get’s his new bong in the mail) The plot is great you can actually see it happening, “Hey Mom, I’m getting married, to a doctor, oops forgot to mention I’m gay and he’s is too”. The movie happens in a wonderful little town that time forgot in the middle of the German Alps. The sound track is modern and eclectic (starts off with Valerie by Amy Winehouse and even has Lily Allen doing “Don’t get me wrong” a Pretenders cover she nails). There is even a very satisfying punch.
