Fashion Victims Synopsis

At 52, traveling salesman Wolfgang Zenker (Edgar Selge) is in old school territory: he peddles the company's classic clothing line to boutiques that cater to women over 35. When Wolfi loses his drivers license in his brand-new Mercedes but can't afford to lose the season's sales because his frustrated wife (Franziska Walser) desperately wants a new bathroom, their son's vacation plans take a back seat as Karsten (Florian Bartholomäi) is forced to making sales rounds with his father instead of celebrating his high school graduation in Spain. Also making the rounds in small town southern Germany is successful and attractive sales rival Steven Brookmüller (Roman Knizka), 33. As the men's paths cross, long-hidden secrets are revealed and things come to a hilarious head.

A film with wry humor but with serious issues that's worth pondering upon.  It tackles family relations, a father's mid-life crisis, materialism and competition, among others. It also tackles gay romance and of a son who's drawn to someone who's unfortunately his father's business nemesis. Acting performances were laudable notably that of the father Wolfgang portrayed by Edgar Selge, the son Karsten portrayed by F. Bartholomai and Steven Brookmuiller, Wolfgang's competitor who's  portrayed by Roman Krizkal.  Colorful characters all with issues of their own. The cinematography is also generally impressive.

Heartwarming family-cum-LGBT film that follows the lives of Wolfgang and his family as well as his son's introduction to his own sexual preferences, among others.  The intro scene that shows the cast and production staff's names was quirky and creative.  I just had some qualms with the title though. Nonetheless this is a fun movie that tackles not only human conflicts but also about fashion apparel marketing and ideas on fashion trends. Interesting and worth checking out!
