“Nico Sommer tells about the relationship crisis of three couples in a relaxed but very detailed way. A great melange of tragedy and comedy – in other words: Don’t mess with Peter (Trabner)…!” ( EPD film), “Absurd family fun!” (TV Movie).
“Family Fever” (Familienfieber) starts on 15th January 2015 in German cinemas and already the premiere at Berlin’s Babylon on 13th January was an huge success. Earlier this year, Nico Sommer has won the Best Director Award at the achtung berlin film festival for this movie and besides that, it has received many great reviews so far.
On the film:
At some point, they have to meet finally: Alina and Nico are in love as of late and have decided to introduce their parents to each other – notoriously a venturous enterprise. And so, Maja and Uwe are reluctant to their daughter’s plan. Nevertheless, the family hits the road to the “big house” of her boyfriend, as Alina announces it, somewhere in the Berlin hinterlands. After the house turns out to be a genuine castle, Maja has to face the additional fact that she knows Nico’s father much better than she would prefer in this situation. One thing’s for sure: that sounds great!
