Easily one of the best 'gay interest' funny/amusing films I have seen. Watched it several times and still enjoying it. ;o)
Role-reversals overlaid with misinterpretations lead to a really amusing film, the only down side being focusing on the English sub-text to appreciate the dialogue.
The film begins with the straight male cop being dumped and is subjected to a series of faux pas / disasters while getting drunk, which sets the scene for this quick-witted film.
Waking up nude in bed with a gay car mechanic, he wonders 'what happened last night...?' - the mechanic isn't telling!
Reluctantly the straight police inspector (= uk detective) is forced (due to housing shortage) to lodge with the (sloppy) car mechanic, and the mis-understandings heat up!
The later nude shared bath scene is touching.
Now I wish I knew German.
