Synopsis: In this whimsical, rather fey movie in a setting that's both shabby (the city) and grand (the landscape), two couples who trade places and two older men who bother the shy main character Fleischman wander in and out of scenes in a hotel perched on a mountain and topped by a pointed weather tower. There are dreamy, breathtaking panoramic views of sky, clouds, and the city of Liberic below. Up in that tower, Fleischman practices the art of meteorology and shies away from girls.

- Guten Tag.

- Guten Tag.

Every woman has a certain scent.

and if they smell like gas--wow.

Hey, that new gal

is like a dead fish.

But even a dead fish

can grant you three wishes.

- Why do you think I hired her?

- What are you talking about?

I'll translate:

Even this can become a dew point

from minimum to maximum. Get it?

Sure. The dew point: when the

air's saturated and clouds form.

- It's a magic moment.

- Is the weather all you care about?

About flying, too.

- Great, but I want to know

if you've ever screwed. -What?

Have you ever screwed? Get me?

Humpty Dumpty.

As I can see, obviously not.

Of... Of course I've screwed.

- Oh, I'm sure you screwed

yourself. -A girl, of course.

Right. Fleischman:

Self-Screw, Inc.

Hey, do you know

Jegr's first commandment?

- No, and I don't want to.

- It goes like this:

Go for it...

I'll show you a magic moment.

Like some ice cream, babe?

You went too far, man!

You're fired, you frigid bitch!

Pretty cool dew point...

Hey, you live here free, eat

free, ride the cable carefree...

If you were a man you'd screw

free! I treat you like family.

- No one asked you to.

- What'd you say?


I feel like an underpaid slave.

Now I'm pissed. I try my best

to help you stop beating off,

but you just think you're funny.

Get lost! Beat it!

Fucking maintenance man...

Hello, ticket inspection...

Thank you.

Hello, ticket inspection...


Ticket inspection!

But you have a ticket.


- A tornado?

- The tram.

You got a problem, Fleischman,

and I got the solution:

Don't worry, be happy.

Oh, no...

- Get moving, you old fart.

- What did you say?

Just that it's going to rain.

- Welcome back.

- Welcome back? This is my home.

- Know how you recognise Heimat?

- No. -Komme hier...

- Come here. - Ow! Mr. Franz!

- Sniff... Smell it? -What?

What I smelled over England.

Always, whenever I was in danger

I recalled the sweet-sour smell

of this town.

Cabbage and strudel.

That's just the kitchen.

Achtung! Give that here.

Our next mission...

What's our motto?

- A person belongs where he

was born. - Dismissed! - Danke.

Come in!

- What's the forecast today?

- Nice.

- You say that even when it's cloudy.

- Clouds don't bother me.

- Me neither; I like fog.

- Fog isn't a cloud.

- What is it?

- Condensed vapour.

You got

another letter from Germany.

- What are you doing here?

- I work here; and you?

I do too.

This dumpster is sick.

So cure it, doctor.

- What? - I've got

a super solution for you. -What?

Wanna be happy fast?

Wanna be rich?

Wanna do something

with your life?

Happy Life, friend.

All in one. All in one.

Use it for dishes, wood floors,

laundry, ironing, your car.

- I don't have a car. -Guess what

mankind's future depends on.

- Glaciers melting.

- That, too. It depends on global dealing.

We all deal. You're a natural.

You got the face for it, wow!

Don't let happiness pass you by.

Look, you start here.

In a month you got the region.

In 6 months the entire republic.

And then Europe!

So you're here now?

I want to become a super master

and I'll be one in six months.


- This is...

- We already met, right, doctor?

- I'm not really interested.

- Everyone is, right, honey?

It seems silly to me.

Isn't it silly

never to be rich and happy?

- I'll let you worry about that.

- Sure, you're right.
