“’German screwball comedy’ are words not often heard together. But in 1985, Doris Dörrie gifted the movie world with Men…, which comprised all the necessary elements. The story of a jilted husband who, on the sly, becomes the roommate of and gradually befriends his wife’s new, artsy lover is fast-paced silliness, full of witty dialogue and engaging performances. The movie is not easy to find, with only a terribly transferred and even more terribly dubbed DVD available in the U.S.” (Laura Kern, Film Comment) Catch it at this rare screening.
