FAMILY AFFAIRS (DER NACHNAME)

FAMILY AFFAIRS
© Constantin Film

Production Report featured in
German Films Quarterly 02/2022

It could have been a fun family get-together. But no sooner have husband and wife Stephan and Elisabeth arrived on Lanzarote with fresh parents Thomas and Anna, new conflicts erupt in the Böttcher family. Not only do they hardly recognize their beloved family vacation home, even worse: Her mother Dorothea and adoptive son René have intensified their relationship on the Canary Island, and announce they want to have kids! In varying constellations and shifting alliances, they wrangle over complicated lines of inheritance, impossible pregnancies and the modern version of what a family is – as the Spanish sun, the lure of a young female vintner, and the buzz of hash cookies send things spiraling out of control.
