For years they have been a couple and a well-rehearsed team. But just the fact that Hans (Marc Hosemann) only calls his girlfriend Heinz (Laura Tonke) shows that romanticism has long been pursued. Everyday life has suffocated every fire. Hans works in a copy shop while actress Heinz keeps her head above water with dubbing work for a cartoon traffic light. While he seems to be satisfied with this situation, Heinz finally wants more. And so they create a list with everything that belongs to a real love like in the cinema - but unfortunately real life is quite different than in the film…
"Two in the Wrong Film" begins where most romantic comedies end: at the end of such a cinema romance. Not only an amusing conversation about clichés and conventions of this genre begins, but also an entertaining modification of them. Director Laura Lackmann ("Mängeexemplar") uses the usual clichés to let a couple trapped in everyday life question their relationship, but also their life itself. This is filled with wonderful dialogues, bizarre snapshots and some really funny scenes. But "Two in the Wrong Movie" is much more than just a light comedy.
There are also aspects that may be comically packaged, but which are treated with the necessary seriousness. This is necessary to make clear how unhappy Heinz is with her life and how difficult it is for her to feel loved by a man who calls her Heinz. On this level, "Zwei im falschen Film" doesn't just make you laugh, but also makes you reflect on your own life.
The film is carried by two great actors. The chemistry between Marc Hosemann and Laura Tonke is perfect. They seem familiar and yet one also feels a certain distance, which increasingly shifts between them. How Laura Lackmann builds this up and finally resolves it is another strength of the film. A surprising, original and refreshingly unconventional relationship comedy. Absolutely worth seeing!
