In this feelgood comedy from Switzerland, Andre (Stefan Kurt) is a timid fiftysomething taxi driver and model plane enthusiast who has his life turned upside down – and not before time either – when an American turns up on his doorstep, intent on meeting his octogenarian mother - who used to be a Hollywood starlet. She gave up her dreams for her son, or so she likes to claim, and Andre’s been at her beck and call ever since, tending to her every need, and seemingly unable to assert himself.

All that changes with the arrival of Bill (Stanley Townsend), a self-confident American who claims to be Andre’s brother. He was brought up by his father, a film producer – or rather by a series of nannies. And now he wants to take his place in the family he feels he has been deprived of all his life. Louise is ecstatic. Andre, not so much.

Mixing comic whimsy and poignant observational asides, Bettina Oberli’s charming film has some shrewd things to say about the ways we identify ourselves, within and beyond the family nest.
