Synopsis

A failed relationship leads a heartbroken man on a quest to perfect his macho swagger in this romantic comedy from Germany. Nice-guy schoolteacher Alex (Matthias Schweighöfer) shares an apartment with his girlfriend Carolin (Mavie Hörbiger). But just as things start to get serious, Carolin drops a bombshell -- she's in love with her handsome neighbor Jens (Thomas Kretschmann), and Alex has to go. Fortunately for Alex, his best friend Nele (Sibel Kekilli) offers him a bed to sleep in, and a shoulder to lean on. Meanwhile, Alex's macho pal Okke (Elyas M'Barek) decides to give his sheepish friend a crash course in living like a testosterone-fueled titan. But now the harder Alex strives to embrace male stereotypes, the more it begins to dawn on him that perhaps he just needs to find a woman who will accept him for who he truly is, rather than trying to shape him into something he's not. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
