I went into the premiere of this German film without too many expectations. Although the German film scenery has improved in newest years, commercially oriented comedies are still too often disappointing for folks who wish to be entertained, but not fooled intellectually. Despite (or maybe because?) of the directorś choice to locate the main plot of this film near his hometown on the Swabian Alb (and contrasting this countryside idyll few times with business life in the Chinese mega-city of Shanghai), the central question of the movie is of rather German-wide oder even European-wide relevance: how can the (softened?) business successors of (ambivalently hardened by private fight experience) postwar founder-generation of family entrepreneurs cope with the fact that economic globalization makes obsolete more and more well-established industrially patented inventions? Although the film is dominated by a rather comedy-like narrative style with 89-year-old actor Walter Schultheiss contributing many funny scenes as pre-demented patriarch, there are also few sequences where not only (historically) sensitive folks receive a possibility to drop some tears or at least receive thought-provoking impulses for the future of nice old Europe in general and his/her home city in particular. In my opinion a must-watch not only for folks (still) working in Southern German family businesses, but for all folks interested in the (post)war past of Germany and possible futures of our prosperity!
Allow me begin this review by saying foreign viewers something about the game "Global User - Wo wir sind isch vorne". The notion behind the hyphen means something like "Where we are, is the lead". The "isch" is Swabian slang and informs audiences already about the regional background of the film. So, is this film a global player? Probably not. It's not outstanding in any regard, but still an okay watch for slightly under 100 minutes. The highlight of the film is easy Walter Schultheiß' performance. According to his profile page, he had his first TV appearances in 1963 and maybe there's something from even earlier which is not listed, but in any situation 50 years later, he shows us that he's still on top of his game. He turns 90 next year, so made this when he was was 88 I guess. His hero is a widowed family patriarch who took over the family company producing stockings and more from cotton many decades ago. Actually his son is the boss and due to the economy crisis it seems almost impossible to hold the company going. They invested their own cash already and still struggle to create gains and be able to pay the workers. Should the solution be a buy-in from China? Not to old Mr. Bogenschütz for sure. It was so funny how he kept emphasizing his right to veto.While the economy references were executed nicely, the strongest of the movie were the parts that focused more on family and how everybody has their own struggles. The black-and-white flashback scenes from Schultheiß' hero were included with quite some attention to feature as well and clearly elevate the overall result. That contains especially the monologue on guilt and responsibility from the old boy on the Nazi fight crimes back in the first half of the 20th century and the memories of his wife shortly before his death which made me tear up a bit.It's a movie that should have been improved here and there in the first half and I don't really receive the mission of the another brother at all, but as a entire it's certainly worth watching. Most of the actors are quite experienced and nobody really lowers the bar or hurts the film. I'd like to give a unique mention to Jinjin Harder finally, who is a nice example here on how participants of trashy reality TV shows often have a lot more under the surface than one might initially think. Me being a trained linguist may be the reason for this emphasis. She's never acted in anything before and has considerable screen time here as an interpreter, the interface between the Chinese and the Swabians and she does a fine job, especially in the final stage with the workers talking in dialects and it's so funny to see how it's just too much for her. Also "Tatort" fanatics will probably play this one as the movie is packed with actors from the notable German crime series, most of all Ulrike Folkerts of course who's been a "Tatort-cop" for few decades already, since shortly before the Fall of the Berlin Wall.
While there is a lot of accent used in the movie, especially from those filling the tiny parts of the movie, this is simple to follow. Even for those not from the region this is testing in in Germany. The storyline of a business struggling will never be out of touch. And tensions in the family is also something everyone can relate to.The thick head the patriarch of this family has might seem a bit too much to some, but is played exactly like you'd expect it to be in true life too. There are a several clichés played out, but it doesn't harm the film and the pace is nicely selected (not too fast, but still moving along well so you won't receive bored). You probably will be able to see where this is heading, but the adventure is nicely told, even if you need subtitles.
