Life is not for Wimps (Das Leben ist nichts für Feiglinge)

How much misfortunate do you need before you feel like life is just too hard and you rather be dead. Many years ago I had stomach flue and I felt so bad that I just wanted to be relieved of my misery. Cowered in bed with excruciating pain, I exclaimed. “God, please let me die.”

Next day the flue was gone and I was so happy that there was no God that heard my plea. I was alive and happy again. But if such pain continues not for days but weeks and months, who would not want to give up? Fate is not kind to a father and his 15-year-old daughter when the wife and mother dies in an accident. The can barely cope and in different ways and then fate deals them a 2nd blow. This German film despite the dark subject is a charming exploration of dealing with real loss. It even has moments of great humor.
