Storyline

A free-wheeling comedy, Zur Sache Schaetzchen chronicles a day in the life of Martin, a witty yet lazy songwriter who'd rather not get out of bed. During the opening sequence, Martin watches a break-in on the other side of the street. In the morning, his friend Henry forces him to report it to the police, yet Martin gets bored with the cops and flees. The two of them spent the rest of the day escaping the law, in the Munich zoo and a public bath, were Martin meets Barbara. Block, the record company executive, needs Martin's new song lyrics right away, and Martin, who continually cranks out mad random remarks, comes up with a ridiculous sailor song. In the end, Martin's playful- ness collides with the authority the police represents. The movie is certainly not plot based; it draws its superior humor from one-liners and the hilarious, carefree insanity of its protagonist. Written by Jurgen Muck Fauth

some weightless moments in the sixties
5 April 2003 | by hanskaufSee all my reviews

Since I last saw this movie (on TV), some years have gone by. While other people in other places tried to set up a student´s revolution, May Spils and Werner Enke decided to make a little movie in the summer-lit Munich. There, a sympathetic good-for-nothing is hanging about and constantly producing one-line jokes. Of course, a girl passes by as well... Not much of a story, but this film seems to have been made at the right time to catch some weightless moments in the sixties. The characters move about aimlessly, but with the certainty that life is precisely here and now. A not-at-all typical german movie, I like this one very much, especially for its complete lack of ambition and the ease it radiates, which now has a touch of nostalgia. Sometimes, fortunately, film can catch and preserve the taste of a moment. In German, "zur Sache, Schätzchen" has become a saying.
