Enjoy your meal.

Good night.


Good night, Emma.

Your legs, not your arms.


Right, my lees-

Not my arms.

You always take my stuff!

That's so not true!

Morn, she keeps taking my stuff!

- Where's my math book?

- In America, most likely.

Here it is.

- Hold your horses!

- See?


Have a nice morning.



It's all right, Karli.

I'll stay here till

you've gone back to sleep.

28, 35, 42

- 49.

- 6 times 8?

- 48. My turn.

- 5 times 9?

- 45.

7 times 8?

- 58.

- You're piling it on!

Better too much than too little.

How much too much?


Not that much.

Just a little.

What's wrong?

It won't hurt you.


Why don't you talk to Jilrg?

I've tried, but he won't budge.

Maybe you need to make things clear.

It won't get better

if you bear the whole burden yourself.

I went through that with my mother.

I'm sorry, Maya. I have to go.

- Do you know what happened?

- Yes,jonas told me.

Karli must never again

go off with Jonas.

Calm down!

Nothing happened.

Are you really not getting it?

- What?

- That your father is demented.

- What a load of bull!

- I looked it up online.

I think he's got Alzheimer's.

Frnzi, really!

We should have him examined.

If my father had Alzheimer's

he couldn't drive a tractor anymore.

- Can he do that?

- Indeed!

Don't you see all the things

he cannot do anymore?

That's perfectly normal at his age.

I don't think so.

- Super, Karli!

- A memory like an elephant.

- Well done!

- Thank you, doctor.


Wanna come to the forest with me,


- Yes, let's do that.

- Good.

Don't let Karli operate the chainsaw!

Do you know how long

he's been handling saws?

Since I was 14.


- Everyone is going to the concert.

- You're staying home!

- Grandpa

- But Werni is coming today.

- Daddy, please!

- Put on something decent!

No black stuff!

Green or white?

- Green.

- White.

- Hi, Pops.

- Hi, Werni. Hi.

- A new car, right?

- No.

We had it the last time we came.

- Hello, Jonas.

- Hello.

Right, come along!

Toni, I forgot the water.

Could you fetch it, please?

Enjoy your meal.

To Werni! He got a promotion.

Really? Tell us.

Nothing big.

Just the next step up.

Eat, Pops!

It'll get cold.

I refuse to eat this slop!

What's wrong, Pops?

What's the matter with him?


What's going on?

- Grandpa threw his food away.

- Why?

That's what I'd like to know.

- Grandpa has Oldtimes.

- Jonas, cut it out!


Morn said so.

This napkin rubs off, damn it!

Poor Frnzi!

I wouldn't want to be in her shoes.

It's Pops that's sick, not her.


What are you going to do now?

About what?

About the estate.

Isn't it time you addressed that?

- Do it while Karli is still

- Andrea!

Or you'lljust end up fighting.

It's wrong of you to

set the kids against my father.

I'm doing no such thing.

The kids themselves notice

what's wrong with Karli.

- Jonas

- Jonas loves his grandfather.

I love Karli, too.

Come on!

I just want to


Damn slugs!

Karli, could you get rne

some yogurt jars from the storeroom?

I won't go in there.

- Why not?

- Because.

Come on! Get rne those jars!


Okay, be that way.

- I have to go to the village.

- I want to come, too.


I want to go to the village, too.

Come on, let's get those jars.

Goddamn jars!

Don't be afraid.



Karli, open the door!

The key]

Open the door!

Get help!

Open the door!

Hello, is this the way to the village?

To the village?

No, you'll have to turn around.

- Where do you want to go?

- To the Ochsen Inn.
