Somebody up there likes me

Robert Byington

Max is actually a very ordinary young man his late 20s who has to choose a path in life. But this path does not turn out as you would imagine. Despite economic success and three marriages to beautiful women, he pursues his own life with increasing passivity, and in contrast to all others, he is not growing any older. In a very comical way, he stumbles through the 35 years, which director Bob Byington describes in the best tradition of American indie film. The outstanding performer (especially Keith Poulson and Nick Offerman ("Parks and Recreation")) draw a portrait of their generation and, at the same time, an apt parody on the interminable success stories, which are flooding cinema and television. _„An appealingly odd mix, like a Todd Solondz film directed by Wes Anderson“ – Stephen Dalton, The Hollywood Reporter_ _Also screened: Saturday March 29th, 2014 / 8:30 p.m. / Deutsches Filmmuseum_
