Gags are guaranteed as Karl, a candidate for Grumpiest Lifeguard Ever, seeks to save the love of his life, the local swimming pool, from closure. Luckily he has his ‘deputy’, the asylum-seeker Sali, by his side and after a few initial difficulties the whole village of Grubberg joins in. A laconic hymn to life, community and, in the end, love.
“Lifeguard off Duty” is the newest film by the very successful German director Marcus H. Rosenmüller, who is responsible for movies such as “Double Trouble & The Magical Mirror” and “The Keeper”.
