DER MANN, DER SEINEN MÖRDER SUCHT (1931) * with switchable English subtitles *

Heinz Rühmann, Lien Deyers and Raimund Janitschek
$13.99

Hans Herfort hat nach langem Grübeln beschlossen, seinem Leben ein Ende zu bereiten. Was soll er noch auf dieser Welt, wenn er sowieso nur von Gläubigern gehetzt wird? Wäre er nur nicht so ängstlich, dann hätte er schon lange den Abzug seiner Pistole betätigt. Er will schon wieder aufgeben, da klettert plötzlich der Einbrecher Otto Kuttlapp über den Balkon in Hans′ Wohnung. Die beiden Herren kommen ins Gespräch, und Hans hat die Idee, einfach Kuttlapp als seinen Mörder zu engagieren. Bis zum nächsten Tag um zwölf Uhr mittags soll Kuttlapp den Auftrag erledigt haben, dann erhält er 15.000 Mark aus Hans′ Lebensversicherung. Wann, wie und wo er zuschlägt, bleibt ihm überlassen. 

Hans Herfort wants to shoot himself because he is mired down in debt.  Shortly before the suicide attempt, however, he is surprised by Otto Kuttlapp, who has criminally broken into his home.  It then becomes Otto's turn to be surprised when Hans demands that Otto take the gun he is threating Hans with and shoot him.  Now Otto may be a burglar, who will shoot someone getting in the way of the commission of a crime, but he is no Dr. Kervorkian and outright refuses to assist Hans commit suicide  (okaaaaaay).  Morally repulsed by the idea of assisted suicide -- and not even a part-time Oregon resident -- he instead recommends to Hans that he seek out "The White Vest", an organization, which is known to help out those looking to kill themselves. And yes:  this is a comedy!  If you like black comedies, you'll like this one.  Like most people's lives who commit suicide, the film is of short duration.

when you have a great cast, a great director and some great writers (billy wilder, etc) then you know you'r in for a wonderful funny crazy treat... loved this film... Heinz r. is at his very best ... raimund janitschek is hilarious as the burglar who cant be talked into shooting our suicidal Heinz !! until he receives an offer $$$$ that's too good to turn down.  but then our hero changes his mind when he fall in love with a would-be  female rescuer ... but is it tooo late to break the contract with the hired killer who isn't a natural born killer!! stay tuned.... this is a lot of fun .. it never lets up with the laughs and numerous unsuccesful attempts to carry out the "contract"... will Heinz somehow be able to survive and in the end live happily ever after with his new love ??? only billy knows how this all ends .... enjoy!!
