Family Affairs

Der Nachname

Three years after the highly successful comedy of manners “How About Adolf?”(Der Vorname), acclaimed director Sönke Wortmann (“Contra”, “Ms Müller Must Go”) is now back with the equally caustic sequel FAMILY AFFAIRS. In varying alliances, a family starts wrangling over complicated lines of inheritance, impossible pregnancies and the modern concept of what a family is – with the Spanish sun, the charms of a young female vintner and the effects of space cookies escalating the situation even further.

It should have been a harmonious reunion on Lanzarote, but no sooner do the couple Stephan and Elisabeth and the new parents Thomas and Anna arrive at the family home than new quarrels break out in the Böttcher family.
