Writer-Director: Julia C. Kaiser, Cinematography: Dominik Berg, Editor: Linda Bosch, Producers: Oliver Schütte, Stefan Jäger, Katrin Renz, Milena Klemke, Starring: Anna König, Till Butterbach, Ines Marie Westernströer, Julia Becker, Anne Ratte-Polle, Christian Natter, Cynthia Micas, Anne von Keller
Both in their “sleepy” thirties, Anna (König) and Hans (Butterbach) seem like the perfect couple. Their long-lasting relationship is fueled by their passion for food, cooking, and of course each for other. Seemingly inseparable, Anna and Hans belong together; so much so that their friends lovingly refer to them as “the Hannas”.
To their friends, the Hannas’ relationship is the model of stability and happiness. For the Hannas, however, more than a decade together has driven them into a rut. Although they still love each other, Anna and Hans need something new in their lives that will give them back their individual personalities.
As Hanna takes up swimming, and Hans joins a fitness boot camp, they each meet someone new; the wild sisters Kim (Becker) and Nico (Westernströer) with whom each of them begin their own secret affair. Inevitably they become emotionally entangled and end up putting themselves, and their relationships through the wringer: Kaiser’s second feature is a humorous story about couples, bodies, food and love in your thirties.
