Synopsis: A documentary culture clash between India and Germany: Amma & Appa – Tamil for Mother and Father– tells the story of two married couples – both around the same age, both married for more than thirty years; yet from totally different cultural settings: Bavaria and India. They come together because their children have fallen in love and want to shoot a documentary film about this meeting of cultures. Amma & Appa is a humorous and sensitive exploration of the biographies and love stories of two (actually three) couples, who are so different but only at first glance.
