Time After Time

Germany, 1990 (MIFF 1991, Fiction)

Director: Michael Gutman

A comic tale about Helmut Kohl whose main problem is his name - it's the same as the German Chancellor's. Helmut's other problem is the name Simone which the more he tries to forget, the more he hears. Pristine and offbeat with plenty of - dare we say? - "past modern" jokes.
