Love ... what? Hurts? Is a many splendid thing? In "Robert Zimmermann wundert sich ueber die Liebe", it′s what happens to the cool, has-it-oh-so-good, video games designer, Robert Zimmermann (Tom Schilling) when, out of the blue, Cupid′s arrow hits home, hard! No sooner than he meets the 45-year-old, single parent, dry cleaning assistant, Monika (Maruschka Detmers), than he′s head over heels, in deep. Not only is he madly in love, he′s in lurve! Which, as any romantic will tell you, is what happens when a person is so convinced that the two of them are made for each other that love and life itself appear in a new light. But then Robert realizes that he first has to grasp what love means. Not only his own, but also that of Monika.
And it′s not like Robert (who owes his name to his father′s love of Bob Dylan) is the only one who′s got the love bug! Dad (played by Adam Oest) leaves his wife for an extremely younger alternative; his lesbian sister, Pia (Annika Kuhl), wants a baby; and his roommate, Ole (Christian Sengewald) is battling his way through the contact ads jungle.
