Mensch Kotschie

Mensch Kotschie

Deutschland 2009, Spielfilm

Inhalt

With his 50th birthday approaching, architect Jürgen Kotschie suddenly feels unsatisfied with his life. In his everyday existence and even in his love life, he is bordering between reality and fantasy. Kotschie tries to challenge his midlife crisis, but no one seems to understand him. Moreover, he starts to suffer from short breath, sweat flops and weight gain. Is he experiencing a male menopause?
Fact is that nothing seems to work out anymore in this man′s life, and Kotschie begins to empathize with his sullen father who seems to be glued to the TV remote. As a man on the verge of a nervous breakdown, Kotschie has to overcome the gratest obstacle of all – his own ego.
