The Eberhofer Franz (Sebastian Bezzel) is Papa. But there can be no talk of family harmony with him. His girlfriend Susi (Lisa Maria Potthoff) gave him the go-ahead and Eberhofer is only allowed to see his son sporadically. So now he is a bachelor again and spends his free time drinking beer and eating Leberkässemmeln. And at some point his body no longer goes along with this - Eberhofer is put on a diet. And as if that weren't bad enough already, he also has to deal with a case of arson, which brings the biggest football hope of Niederkaltenkirchen into prison. Together with his buddy, private detective Rudi (Simon Schwartz), Eberhofer gets to the bottom of the matter, while his body fights against Leberkäs withdrawal symptoms…
"Leberkäsjunkie" is now the sixth adaptation of Rita Falk's popular Eberhofer crime thriller. The film adaptations are a real phenomenon, as each part attracts more viewers to the cinemas than the previous one. Part 5, which was shown outside Bavaria for the first time at the cinema release, even managed to break through the magic million barrier. The chances are good that the sixth film will succeed in doing the same. Because regular director Ed Herzog mixes the proven ingredients again to a wonderfully quirky whole, which lives above all from the wonderful interaction of the perfectly cast characters.
>Specially Sebastian Bezzel proves once again to be an ideal cast for the unadjusted policeman Franz Eberhofer, who regularly brings his fellow men to the brink of despair ("Zefix, Eberhofer"!). The interplay with Simon Schwarz in particular provides the unmistakable tone of the series, which, despite their very Bavarian character, also makes the films so popular beyond the Weisswurst equator. Weird, evil and always very charming - this is how fans know and love their Eberhofer films. And part 6 again delivers exactly what the audience expects.
This time, too, the actual crime story is only a minor matter. Which doesn't mean she wouldn't be very entertaining, too. But in the end it's all about Franz and Susi again, about Rudi, about Papa and his preference for hemp products (which this time is replaced by a new passion), about his grandmother and about the other inhabitants of Niederkaltenkirchen. Those who already liked the first parts for exactly these reasons will be entertained in the best way again. Sure, not every gag hits the mark, but in most cases the dialogues are again extremely funny and wonderfully politically incorrect. It's easy to become an Eberhofer junkie: absolutely worth seeing!
