If Oh Boy [+see also:

film profile] starts out very poorly for its main character, a young "man without qualities" who loses his girlfriend, driving license and means of payment all in one go and starts wandering the streets of Berlin until dawn, looking for a simple coffee, the film itself continues to seduce with its humour, absurdity and the ease with which we relate to the tragedy of the everyday events that it depicts. Its already successful career was crowned on Friday night at the Lolas – German Film Awards, with 6 trophies, including the Golden Lola for Best Film, awards for Best Director and Best Screenplay for Jan Ole Gerster (photo) and the Best Actor Award for Tom Schilling.
The members of the German Film Academy also awarded a Silver Lola to Hannah Arendt [+see also:
