Eltern AKA: Parents

Other mothers envy Christine, who works as a nurse, for having such a perfect house husband. But now Konrad want to take up theater directing again, so they hire a nanny. But she quickly turns up pregnant. Will she keep the baby? Konrad and Christine end up with more responsibility than before, which affects their relationship.
While billed on the DVD cover as 'The Best German Comedy in Years', this film is more along the lines of a comedy-drama, as there is nothing outright hilarious or outrageous going on. The children have around 70% screen time and while they aren't the focal point of the film, they do play pivotal roles in the plot line. Especially the eldest Käthe who is played by Paraschiva Dragus who was in another recent release, 'Operation Zucker'. The youngest sister, Emma, is played by Emilia Pieske. While she isn't a German 'Dakota Fanning', she is cute and someone to keep an eye on..
Also of note, the babysitter/nanny Isabel is played by Clara Lago who played 'Carol' in the movie 'El Viaje de Carol' AKA: 'Carol's Journey' in 2002 when she was 11/12 years old.
Unfortunately there are no subtitles what-so-ever on the DVD. Not even German Closed Captions..
