Storyline

This popular family drama deals with the smaller and bigger problems of caretaker Martha Haslbeck living in an average quarter in the city center of Munich. Although life doesn't always treat her fair, she doesn't loose her good sense of humor. Martha has to take care of her unreasonable daughter Christa and her son-in-law Bertl, the often annoying occupants of her house and, last but not least, her lazy ex-husband Josef and his eccentric new wife Ilse. One fine day, she gets to know the Greek craftsman Costa Doganis and falls in love with him... Written by fippi2000

Optimal story about the life of normal people in Munich
22 February 2004 | by See all my reviews

This is the story of an ordinary caretaker (Veronika Fitz) in an ordinary apartment house in Munich. Dumped by her husband, she works in many different jobs (besides being caretaker), e.g., for a gas station and a city councilman. She handles the problems of her daughter, her son-in-law, and many apartment tenants, and eventually she enters a relationship with a Greek craftsman

There is nothing fancy about the plot, the characters, the actors, the whole series, and it is simply wonderful. There are few other films that document the life in Munich in the late 80s in such a brilliant way. The makers of this series have captured the spirit of the time and the place, and they included situations and characters from many different communities who may have little in common - good and shifty, awkward and clever, wealthy and poor - but interact only in very natural ways and situations.

The cast in this jewel of local film production includes many well-known actors, like Veronika Fitz, Helmut Fischer, Ilse Neubauer, Bettina Redlich, Jochen Busse. If you are interested in a profound milieu study and if you have ever the opportunity to see this series, don't miss it!
