The GipfelzipflerThe Gipfelzipfler
ORF 1, 2010 | Comedy
Rating: 4/5

'Die Gipfelzipfler' are Nick Pralle and Frank Rensing, who clash behind the scenes of the TV show 'Die Musikantenheimat' through Frank's manager. There they are supposed to perform as 'Die Gipfelzipfler'. But they have a big problem and finally have to write a new song - and time is running out. After all, it is a real-time comedy. That means every minute is also a minute until the countdown to the big performance. And there, of course, they stumble from one problem to the next. Then there are the major differences between the characters themselves. One comes from the folk Schlagermusik, the other is a studio musician who rather likes Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin - which of course leads to great tensions between the two. But the whole thing finally ends in a big showdown that takes a surprising turn.
