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.

Happiness Sucks image

Happiness Sucks (15)

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. Convinced that a bizarre ancient ritual will cure Sabrina’s illness, Jessica goes on a mission that's as comic as it is sad.


Director Anca Miruna Lazarescu balances comedy and pathos beautifully in this quirky story scripted by Silvia Wolkan, which explores the challenges of adolescent girlhood as intensified by the pain of serious illness. Meanwhile the girls' father, Stefan (Martin Wuttke), is a kind single dad who works as a hospice caregiver, counselling the dying, all the while facing the possibility of his own untimely bereavement.


Happiness Sucks is a bittersweet film that finds humour and comfort in the most unlikely situations.


After the film, director Anca Miruna Lazarescu and actor Christian Friedel will take to the stage for a Q&A hosted by Anna Smith, film critic and host of the Girls On Film podcast.

Chantal Akerman par Chantal Akerman (1996, 63')


Commissioned for Cinéma, de notre temps, the legendary series of film-maker portraits curated by Janine Bazin and André Labarthe. Akerman chose to make a study of herself as film-maker. Why not? She had turned film-making back on itself, and discovered a feminised and ‘other’ sensibility, another way of seeing the world and self.
