About The Film:

Ethnic identity, family dysfunction and an unexpected pregnancy complicate the planned nuptials of an Arab-Jewish gay couple in the romantic comedy FAMILY COMMITMENTS.

David and boyfriend Khaled (Maximilian von Pufendorf and Omar El-Saeidi) are ready to shatter one of the last great taboos of middle-class German society: a same-sex marriage between a Jew and a Muslim. Having dated for two years and deeply in love, the time is ripe to tie the knot. Nothing could stand in their way it seems, except for their parents: David’s overbearing mother (Maren Kroymann), and Khaled’s homophobic father (Ramin Yazdani). On top of all this, an old acquaintance (Franziska Brandmeier) turns up out of the blue, claiming to be pregnant with David’s baby. As the plot thickens, relationships are stretched to the breaking point by deceit, obfuscations and the struggles of the family business.

The directorial debut of Hanno Olderdissen, FAMILY COMMITMENTS mixes classic screwball comedy with eye-catching production design, a goofy fun soundtrack, and an inclusive multi-cultural worldview.
