This movie is a 2016 comedy by director Simon Verhoeven. It is about a German family in Munich who decides to take in a refugee from a local refugee center.  Actually it is the mother Angelika played by Senta Berger who makes this decision against the will of her husband Richard played by Heiner Lauterbach, adding to the strain of their marriage. With daughter Sophie being an aimless long time student and son Philipp close to a burn-out this family finds itself in an unaccostumed situation and goes through some turbulences and twists and turns that ultimately sheds a positive light on this family, on the refugee situation and life in Germany  and it debunks many prejudices with great insight and humor. The film will be shown in German with English subtitles.
