Yet another German 'comedy' that lives down to the stereotype, this centres on 29-year-old, death-obsessed Fanny Fink (Schrader), who despairs of ever meeting a man; encouraged by a gay African 'psychic' who lives in the same tenement block, she tries to get it on with her new landlord, but things go awry. Dörrie's predictable plotline, derived from the unappealing premise that her heroine's happiness depends on the company of men, relies excessively on supposedly weird and wonderful characters. Actually, it's hard to care about them, especially as it's also hard to believe Schrader - intelligent, pretty, vivacious - would be in this predicament anyway.
