I really enjoyed Handyman despite the mixed feelings I had when I put in this Swiss DVD. Marco Rima does an excellent job playing the more or less successful music promoter Mike, who is quiet a loser when it comes to women. That the Germans Gregor and Mike's Boss are depicted as cheeky and very sure of themselves, even though they are in reality often clueless (e.g. Mike's Boss who has no idea about how to improve the song of one of his clients and Gregor who advices Mike on how to treat women but fails to see that his Girlfriend is leaving him), is a nice and subtle way of showing how Germans are often conceived by Swiss people.
