All About Me

Face to Face with German Talent


The closing film of this year’s Face to Face with German Talent: The German Film Weekend is a heart-warming true story based on the best-selling memoirs of famous German entertainer Hape Kerkeling, here played by talented young actor Julius Weckauf. Oscar®-winning director Caroline Link (Nowhere in Africa, Beyond Silence) delivers a charming portrait of a boy from a troubled family who, after a tragedy, is taken in by his grandmothers. The characterful young boy amuses them and their friends by dressing up and performing colourful impressions, but life is not always easy for a boy like him in 1970s Ruhr Valley.


The bittersweet coming-of-age story explores themes of family, loss, sexuality and life choices with a light touch and an eye for comedy and pathos – true to the spirit of its beloved subject, one of the most popular faces on German television.


With over 3.6 million admissions, All About Me is Germany’s #1 national box-office hit and won three German Films Awards in 2019 for Highest Admissions, Best Supporting Actress for Luise Heyer and the Best Feature Film in Bronze.

Fans of the TV series CSI should appreciate this nail-biting thriller in which a coroner races to save the life of his kidnapped daughter with the help of a stranger. Based on the popular novel by Sebastian Fitzek and Michael Tsokos, it stars Jasna Fritzi Bauer as Linda, a young comic book artist who happens upon a dead body on a beach. Answering the deceased man’s phone, she hears a desperate Paul Herzfeld (Moritz Bleibtreu) begging her to help him, having found the phone number hidden inside a body during an autopsy – along with the name of his daughter, Hannah. The pair then race against time to locate Herzfeld's missing daughter and discover the fate of a series of young women who've fallen victim to brutal kidnappings.


This gripping thriller full of twists and turns is not for the faint hearted as it explores the grisly details of autopsies and sexual violence.

Face to Face with German Talent


A tragicomic coming of age story, Happiness Sucks sees 12-year-old Jessica (Ella Fray) trying to help her sickly 15-year-old sister Sabrina (Emilia Bernsdorf) by finding her a sex partner.
