We tell you! Treasure

  Every year it comes in the time around the festival of festivals to family disputes, which often end tragically. And the lonely, singles or non-family-attached people just complain more in these days their lot. Single-down society, self-realization and self-determination ago: Christmas is still a celebration of family – and for good or evil.

Oliver Eckstein (Samuel Finzi) from Berlin is undoubtedly one of the lonely, which makes difficult to create the upcoming celebration. But instead of resulting in resignation to his fate, he is actively working against the threat of adversity and are simply kidnapped together what he lacks for a successful Christmas the most – a family. A “Mom” and hence has faithful companion for the family, Oliver is already envisaged, it is Sofia (Nina Kronjäger), the frustrated and drinkers, but no less attractive wife of his boss. The rest of the family ties will be looted on the road or anywhere else: The baby will be directly recruited by the baby hatch, this is the 9-year-old Ennio (Ennio Incannnova), the Oliver auftreibt in a playground – obviously no one misses him, too. The grandmother of the family (Margot Nagel) is hastily brought from the old people – along with a Great Dane named Cleo, and even then the Streunerin Maya (Anna Maria Mühe) appears in the empty panel to find a warm place to sleep. It is simply appointed to daughter. Finally, the group is completed by the old Communist Horst (Harald Warmbrunn), who ekes out in the apartment next door as the last remaining tenant a lonely existence and defend the apartment against Wessie speculators. But the forced harmonic gatherings, based, inter alia, that the broken elevator and the stairway is bricked up, proving to be difficult. For alongside Oliver also all other family members have to carry their packs, here in this experimental arrangement, they should – as Oliver’s request – also have the opportunity to find themselves – a mix of Big Brother-container and then group therapy. Of course, it does not take long before the simmering conflicts to break open, despite Oliver’s strict code of conduct – a harmonious Christmas certainly looks different …

Marc Meyer’s debut, we tell you! Treasure is a movie with some light and deep shade. Based on a simple idea, the filmmaker tells a lot about the single company and the widespread desire for unity, security and family cohesion, without being corny and sentimental to be. Unfortunately, Meyer neglected in all the zeal of any explanation for Oliver’s oddball behavior and sets the still by a remarkable final punch another one on top of it, which will indeed provide some laughs, but help as soon after leaving the cinema, it is likely that the correct and important statements Sink the film then but in Geschmunzel with a partially gay cinema are. Internally, the film then it is checked off pretty quickly. Which is quite a bit of a shame.
