the_hannasANNA and HANS belong together; all their friends simply call them the HANNAS: a well-balanced long-term couple in their sleepy thirties united by a cooking obsession.

Director: Julia C. Kaiser
Writer: Julia C. Kaiser
Stars: Julia Becker, Tim Blochwitz, Till Butterbach

Review by Gilbert Seah

The Hannas are Hans and Anna, a long married couple who have been together so long that they are basically the same person. Friends refer to them as THE HANNAS rather than calling them by their individual names.

But there is trouble in paradise as each falls victim to cheating on each other, Anna for Kim (a lesbian relationship) while Hans for Nicola. Nicola is later revealed to be Kim’s sister. There are more twists in the relationship of the 4, revealed as the film progresses.

Everything in this story turns out too well than in real life. Hans and Anna are too forgiving and loving, and in real life it doesn’t happen that others will give up everything for someone who is already married. The film has a more feminine point of view being directed by a woman, such as more emphasis on Anna than on Hans.

Anna is shown at work as a massage therapist while little or nothing is shown of Hans at work. The film has a good start but eventually Kaiser’s quirky film tends to be more annoying (like her characters) than funny.
