It should have been a wonderful evening. Stephan (Christoph Maria Herbst) and Elisabeth have invited their family and friends for dinner, but as soon as Thomas (Florian David Fitz) announces that he and his pregnant girlfriend are planning to name their unborn son Adolf, things get out of hand. A bitter confrontation ensues revealing a clash of egos as truths are dragged to light, kicking and screaming. As the evening escalates and unforgiveable things are said on all sides, the argument about baby names turns into a feast of childhood transgressions and hidden passions, served up for all to enjoy. This is an outstanding social satire lathered in witty dialogue and perfect timing where German guilt and angst over the Nazi past meets a family dinner gone awry.
DIRECTOR: Sönke Wortmann | STARRING: Iris Berben, Florian David Fitz, Christoph Maria Herbst
