CAIPIRANHA

The clichés of suburbia are turned upside down in the cynical comedy CAIPIRANHA about neighbours in war with each other and not suspecting that they will actually be one big family...

Successful building contractor Wolters and his neighbour, the musical scientist Grabwoski, hate each other - as do their wives. What started as a small incident gets out of hand as both parties answer on each provocation with an even more inventive one. Be it the torture of garden gnomes, the misuse of chemicals or the murder of goldfish and cats: there seems to be no end to the feud. What neither of the couples know ist that their children are in love with each other and expect a child. New reason to intensify the attacks over the fence or finally the point of burying the hatchet?
