Go for Zucker
This movie is from our archive and is not currently screening.
The conniving wheeler-dealer Jaeckie Zucker (Henry Hübchen) is up to his neck in trouble – his wife (Hannelore Elsner) wants a divorce, the court bailiff is threatening him with jail. The only hope left for the former GDR sports reporter is his mother's inheritance. In her will, however, she's stipulated that Jackie must reconcile his differences with his brother Samuel (Udo Samel) an orthodox Jew. As Samuel and his entire clan move into Jaeckie's chaotic household, the clash of civilizations is inevitable. But the two stubborn brothers have no choice – they have to get along…
Director Dani Levy uses humour and irony to tell the fast-paced story of his protagonist Jaeckie Zucker and the hurdles he must overcome. Go for Zucker is a highly unorthodox family comedy that describes with delightful audacity a confrontation between two cultures in today's Berlin.
