MAGICAL MYSTERY ODER: DIE RÜCKKEHR DES KARL SCHMIDT
Magical Mystery Or: The Return of Karl Schmidt
F R I 1 7 M A Y | 9 P M
Hamburg in the mid-1990s: following a nervous breakdown and a stay in a psychiatric ward, Karl Schmidt lives in assisted accommodation. He has kicked his alcohol and drug habit when he meets old friends from Berlin, who now have successful careers as music producers. Instead of his prescribed holiday in Luneburg, Karl takes a job with them: to drive their tour bus through Germany and take responsibility for their rave tour. Magical Mystery is an entertaining, techno reinforced road movie in which, as so often, the journey is the goal, almost leading to the selfdiscovery of a lost person because a trip such as this frees us from compulsive standstills. Magical Mystery is based on Sven Regener's successful novel of the same name.
There will be a reception before this film screening. Please present your EUFF ticket to this film to join the pre-screening reception.
