Mother Heidi (Margarita Broich) is shocked when suddenly her ex-husband, who escaped decades ago, is at the door. The anger is great, Kurt (Uwe Ochsenknecht) has never contacted his wife and daughter (Diana Amft) since he disappeared, nothing to me, nothing to you. In the ARD Friday film “My mother and suddenly my father”, Heidi slams the door in front of the unfaithful.
Heidi’s dislike is heightened by the fluffy bear costume the renegade wears. Daughter Toni accidentally picked up her unknown father in Cologne. There the homeless begged Euros for selfies with the funny little bear. The father-daughter story that begins here couldn’t be more sentimental. No doubt she would have what it takes to be a veritable Christmas fairy tale.

Because it happened that Toni also had a picture of his father falling out of his pocket at a young age, the pre-Easter Christmas film is perfect: The recognition of father Kurt and daughter Toni is – regardless of the bear costume – a touching melodrama. Toni succeeds in softening mother Heidi’s heart: Kurt is allowed to stay, at least one night.
Father Kurt made mistakes, as he admits, while daughter Toni always wants to know why he has never contacted me all these years. The answer to that is a long time coming. The author Christian Pfannenschmidt and Jurij Neumann (director) involve father Kurt and mother Heidi in dialogues that are sometimes wondrously tearful, but also accusatory to the point of comedy.

A new gourmet chef is here
They almost hired the renegade for the “copper jug”, which was to be reopened once again. In the new catering team, Kurt – with or without a bear costume – would certainly have been a team player. But with the “copper jug” it is probably the case that there is a new beginning every few days. The concepts and the inn names change just like the staff. The star chef from the beginning (Stephan Luca) is gone, and the nice gardener was only one consequence. Now a new gourmet chef is spreading out. Lucas Prisor plays this Sebastian as sympathetically as energetically. He would certainly have what it takes to be Toni’s long-term flirtation, if not with his husband.
Will the reconciliation be permanent? – Kurt (Uwe Ochsenknecht) and Heidi (Margarita Broich) like in the best of times. (ARD Degeto / Martin Rottenkolber)
Meanwhile, Diana Amft has already shot the family film “Glück reloaded” for ZDF – this time as the daughter of a film mother, played by Michaela May, a broadcast date has not yet been set. “Kupferkanne reloaded” would certainly also be a good title for the next pub film from the Eifel. Let’s see how much Uwe Ochsenknecht in a bear costume has raised the quota and thus the opening for further consequences.
