breaking points for the bourgeoisie
The premise for the film is the conflict that naming your child “Adolf” could cause in your family. That alone would not be enough to sustain a full feature film, and indeed this is only a starting point.
A whole host of family secrets are unraveled in the process, how they think about one another, what they have done in the past and present. It is like throwing a burning match into the store of a gunpowder fabric and making damn sure it stays alight. The result pushes their relations in way one might otherwise see in a Luis Bunuel film, just staying one step short of surrealism.
There are small hints here and there that this is French (rather than German) in its origin, and it may have been better (with a German cast) to adapt these subtle cultural differences to place this in a pure German setting.
Anyway, this is very entertaining for its witty dialogue. The after-the-party events that concluded the piece seemed unnecessary.
Remake of a remake, but the best one so far))
German “How About Adolf?” (original title: “Der Vorname”, 2018) is the latest remake (in my count))) of the Italian “An Italian Name” (original title: “Il nome del figlio”, 2015) which in turn is the remake of the French “What’s in a Name?” (original title: “Le prénom”, 2012), but I think the German is better (more mature)) than other two. Well done!
