The Second Wife
Filmfest 2008

Erwin Kobarek is 41 and still lives with his mother, with whom he operates a gas station in the country. He's never had a girlfriend. When his mother feels it's time for another woman in his life, she sends him to a marriage agency in Romania. Erwin actually does come back with a young Romanian woman, Irena Bobescu. Much to his mother's dismay, she is now the other woman in Erwin's life and sets something irreversible into motion: Erwin cutting the cord and finally growing up.
