Felix enjoys his single life to the fullest, but a ferret bites him, sterilizing him in the process. He tries everything in his power to find the soon-to-be mother of his only child, the result of his first and last sperm donation.
When the Film was produced, the real 01-83-02 was under contract with the Malteser Hilfsdienst gGmbH (Order of Malta). The regular Staff was consulted by production crew and is mentioned in the credits. Every second year the Cologne Fire Brigade sets out a new contract for the different ambulances. See more »

Hoelzemann might have a great future as a German film maker. The plot is subtle, the dialogs witty and understated, the acting, in particular by Schweighoefer and Kremp, great. Schweighoefer is a charismatic actor on who this film is built my wife commented that his presence reminded her of James Dean. To me the psychology of the human relations was more important than the actions the opposite of how Hollywood movies usually proceed. The scene with the suicidal girl on the roof the Cologne cathedral in the background is a game of life and death that keeps you breathless. Were it not for some sentimental, heavy scenes (in particular between November and Crash), I would rate it 10.
