Agnes and His Brothers
A film by Oskar Roehler

115 minutes, fiction, color, German w/ English subtitles, 2004
This DVD is temporarily unavailable.



Agnes and his brothers have little in common except an eccentric father, relationship problems that are totally screwing up their lives, and a distinct possibility those two things are connected.

Sex addict /meek librarian Hans-Jörg can't stop peeping on comely women. Werner, a successful politician, watches powerlessly as his bored wife and smartass son destroy their family. And Agnes, a transsexual, can't quite fit into the mold of happy homemaker expected by her bossy boyfriend.

An outrageous story of how everyday desires for sex, love and understanding can end up pushing people closer and closer to the edge.

Starring Moritz Bleibtreu from Munich and Run Lola Run.
