Lovely Louise


André is in his mid-fifties and still lives with his mother, the 80-year-old actress Louise. He leads a rather unspectacular existence as a taxi driver, dedicated to his hobby, but hardly daring to speak to Steffi, the attractive and younger woman selling sausages at the model-plane airfield, where he flies his precious model planes. One day a stranger from America arrives at their doorstep. His name is Bill and he’ll soon turn their tranquil life upside-down. For the first time in his life, André has to wake up from his lethargy and face a few facts in his life. Well, it’s never too late to start life and love…

“A delicious character study of a sheltered, smothered man who finally finds the spirit to break free of his domineering mother.”
