Hofbräu München Filmnacht: Der Junge muss an die frische Luft
The Ruhr, 1972: nine-year-old Hans-Peter diligently hones his greatest gift, that of making others laugh, which is welcomed as much by the customers in his grandmother’s corner shop as by his good-humoured and party-hungry relatives. Hans-Peter also attempts to use his talent to stave off the looming blows of fate. Between a Ruhr idyll and a family tragedy, Caroline Link has turned Hape Kerkeling’s autobiography into a heart-wrenching film.
"What a lucky find this lead actor is. Julius Weckauf plays the young Hape with such disarming humour, he is so believable, touching and assured that he well-nigh takes your breath away.” Stern
