Freundinnen fürs Leben

OT: Freundinnen fürs Leben

Buket Alakus // Germany, 2005
Fiction Feature // FF2006



Germans have stopped making babies. But why? Buket Alakus brings a lighthanded approach to this difficult topic and made an open-minded and realistic comedy about men, women, and best friends who discuss their plight while they should be singing in the choir. Gustav Peter Wöhler plays the irritated choirmaster and there’s other men galore, as overtaxed hubby, a fond-of-children ex, or devoted daddy.


BUKET ALAKUS (*1971) studied film direction in Hamburg and was awarded a Grimme Prize for Offside (2005). The last film of hers to be shown at FILMFEST HAMBURG was Einmal Hans mit scharfer Soße in 2013.
