Mostly Martha

This is a really cute German Romantic Comedy. Wait, what? Most German films I've seen are really intense, very serious, and to say there's a German romantic comedy, is kinda strange. But this one is really good. The re-make is getting released shortly, No Reservations. It's funny because the preview for the new one could be the preview for this one. Not having seen the English version, it looks like it's pretty much shot-for-shot the same movie. The German version stars Martina Gedeck, and she's great as the uptight chef who takes custody of her sister's daughter. Sergio Castellitto plays Mario, the chef who invades her kitchen and they fall in love. It's a really fun movie, about neuroses and letting people into your life.

A really good German Romantic comedy.
