Another murder in Niederkaltenkirchen – the seventh part of the crime comedy about the village policeman Franz Eberhofer is an entertaining film that brings many surprises.

Munich – Around the murders in Niederkaltenkirchen is abundant. Leberkäs, sauerkraut, Dampfnudeln and other Bavarian specialties play a central role in author Rita Falk’s detective stories from the province of Lower Bavaria. In the seventh part, “Kaiserschmarrdrama”, the village policeman Franz Eberhofer is once again on the hunt for criminals and at the same time deals with private problems.

The film was initially released in theaters in mid-2021, the start of which had previously been postponed several times due to the corona pandemic. The thriller was even more successful on television: 4.81 million tuned in for the first one in August 2022. This Saturday at 8:15 p.m. the film can be seen on repeat on Radio Bavarian television.

It doesn’t work like that for Eberhofer.

Fans of the police series will quickly feel at home. Like Eberhofer, Sebastian Bezzel is as taciturn and interpersonally awkward as ever. His best friend Rudi (Simon Schwarz), who has been in a wheelchair since an accident and needs help, suffers from this. Things are not going well with Susi (Lisa Maria Potthoff) either, as Eberhofer has little desire to go through with building their house together.

And then there’s the dead runner in the woods. Ironically, Eberhofer’s friend Simmerl (Stephan Zinner) is under suspicion. Actress Christine Neubauer (“The Country Doctor”), with her blonde hair, also appears as the owner of the Anzengruber boutique. When a second corpse finally appears, Rudi’s ambition is finally awakened, because of all the SOKO around, Thin Lizzy does not want to give up the field to Eberhofer under any circumstances.

“Funny losers and scramblers (professionals)”

“Kaiserschmarrdrama” is a solid crime comedy, with puns, lots of funny moments and charmingly drawn characters who seem likeable precisely because of their bizarre idiosyncrasies. They’re not high flyers, “but happy (professional) and muddy flops,” as director Ed Herzog puts it.

It’s nice that, unlike many other movies in the series, the slapstick is kept within bounds this time around. And it even becomes very emotional: this is ensured by Eberhofer’s beloved dog Ludwig, who plays a very special role in the work that goes to the heart. dpa
