Family Affairs

Der Nachname

Directed by Sönke Wortmann

Cast: Caroline Peters, Christoph Maria Herbst, Florian David Fitz, Iris Berben, Justus von Dohnányi

It was supposed to be a harmonious family reunion. But no sooner have husband and wife Stephan (Christoph Maria Herbst) and Elisabeth (Caroline Peters) arrived on Lanzarote with new parents Thomas (Florian David Fitz) and Anna (Janina Uhse) than new conflicts start erupting in the Böttcher family. Elisabeth and Thomas can hardly believe it when their mother Dorothea announces that she and adopted son René are now married and that they want to have children!

Three years after the highly successful comedy of manners “How About Adolf?”, acclaimed director Sönke Wortmann (“Contra”, “Ms Müller Must Go”) is now back with the equally caustic sequel.

Official Selection: Zurich 2022 (Gala)
