Product Description

Germany released, PAL/Region 2 DVD: LANGUAGES: German ( Dolby Digital 5.1 ), English ( Subtitles ), German ( Subtitles ), WIDESCREEN (2.35:1), SPECIAL FEATURES: Alternative Footage, Commentary, Deleted Scenes, Interactive Menu, Making Of, Music Video, Trailer(s), SYNOPSIS: Nick Keller (Schweiger) can't hold down a job and has 'a problem with authority.' Working as an orderly in a psychiatric clinic, he's followed home by one of the patients, Leila (Johanna Wokalek), who's suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder after her mother's death and starts hyper-ventilating if touched. An offbeat, strangely tender love story develops as the two hit the road away from the authorities, and Nick has to take responsibility for someone for the first time in his life. Wallpapered with star names and cameos, and with some nicely turned, wry dialogue, pic has an infectious sense of fun, with Christof Wahl's lensing bathing everything in a warm amber light. ...Barefoot ( Barfuss )

When buying this film, I was expecting your usual Rom-com with cheesy lines and intense, love-filled stares. 'Barfuss', however, was not what I expected. Although generally happy, this film has the serious undertones that create a masterpiece of a plot, with the depth one can only find in German cinema. 'Barefoot' tells the delightful story of unconventional love, and how it may not hit directly, but grows into something very special, indeed. With unique characters that are portrayed well and a plot which is a bit...alternative, 'Barfuss' is a true gem of a film.

In German with English subtitles - a story of a young lady who had been kept a virtual prisoner by her mother, who one day collapsed and died. Hence she arrives in a terrifying outside world, and is in a mental hospital - great for rehab!! An unemployed man, who gets a job as a cleaner, takes pity on her, and the story is comical and rather ridiculous, but worth watching. I'm learning German, and found I could follow the plot OK. This is not a classic, but just an improbable story.

Barfuss is a gentle romantic comedy in the German language featuring one of Germany's premier stars in Til Schweiger. Til not only is the lead male actor but also directed and produced Barfuss. To a large extent Barfuss can be described as a Til Schweiger vehicle and he personally had a lot at stake in its success. What he has achieved is a decent but never great romantic comedy that won a reasonable box office and critical acceptance. The film is OK and those who specifically enjoy the romcom genre will enjoy the additional quirks Schweiger has thrown in but this should not be mistaken for a masterpiece.

Schweiger plays Nick Keller a drop-out and failure who finds himself unable to hold onto a job including the position of cleaner in a mental hospital. Lead female Johanna Wokalek plays Leila, a patient at the hospital who breaks free from the insitutional, parental, and self-imposed shackles that haunt her life to follow Keller into the outside world.

The start and set up of the film are actually excellent. Leila's following of Keller could easily have been creepy but it is funny and affecting. That Keller can never do anything right and knows the difficulty of the situations he has gotten himself in makes him an endearing character as well. Most of the comedy part of the romcom comes in the opening sequences as the audience is introduced to the main characters and their many failings. The moment when Keller's off-screen neighbour starts shouting at him for the noise Leila makes at his apartment is one of those funny cos its true moments that are well worth investing in.

There are some slightly uncomfortable elements to Barfuss.

I first saw this film at school in German lessons and the beauty of the story and the acting made me want to buy it. Another excellent aspect of the film is the soundtrack, particularly a cover of the song Hallelujah. If you are extremely sensitive to cheesy lines, though, this film is not for you.

Nick (played by Til Schweiger) finds it difficult to hold down jobs and after being given the sack from his latest one, working as a cleaner in a lunatic asylum, he finds himself back to square one except for one thing: he inadvertently made the acquaintance of Leila (Johanna Wokalek), one of the inmates, who was about to hang herself and somehow she takes a liking to him and follows him home where, to his surprise, she requests to stay with him. He reluctantly acquiesces in Leila's request, but only on the proviso that she returns with him to the asylum the next norming. Now this Leila, although crazy, is not without charm and even looks and, in spite of his misgivings, Nick finds himself 'going on the road' with her on a journey to his parents' house for the wedding of his younger brother to one of his ex-girlfriends. Much that is truly funny and not a little crazy follows, but eventually Nick and Leila arrive at the house and do their best to fit in with the wedding celebrations which, under the circumstances of Leila's condition, is not at all easy, particularly as there is no great love between Nick and his brother and even less between Nick and his stepfather, who happens to be a social snob. In the end, Leila blows her cover and Nick confesses that she is not the doctor he made her out to be but an inmate at the mental hospital and so the pair leave the wedding reception under a cloud - almost literally, since it is pouring with rain when Nick decides to abandon Leila at a Hamburg train station in order to phone her in with the hospital and have someone come and collect her. Later he regrets this and drives back to the station to rescue her from the authorities, but in the meantime the police have arrived and he is apprehended and obliged to do some time for abducting Leila.Read more ›

It was love at first sight with this film. Beautifully written and directed. The options for subtitles in English were a great help and I think my German has actually improved from watching this film! A must see for those who love the 'boy meets girl' genre of film.
