Kevin & Tobias Schmutzler
The Ingolstadt born directors Kevin & Toby Schmutzler realized this thirty minutes short about the Ingolstadt-born bavarian writer Marieluise Fleißer. Fleißer (1901-1974) is known to be one of the first female writers that stepped out of the men's shadows between the World Wars. Constantly suppressed by her father and her fiancee she projects her feelings and behaviors onto her fictional characters.
ÜBER DIE DEUTSCHE FRAU (About German Women) deals with a woman, who has to take the courage to stand her ground.
Off the record: The last day of shooting was supposed to be an easy cool-down from the intense days the cast and crew had gone through before. But yet we planned without the marten that had nibbled some power cables and therefore caused a power cut in the whole location. Of course, this had to happen on a Saturday evening in a small village somewhere in the countryside. Well, by the time a generous electrician had fixed the power issues a few hours later, the baby of our main actress had decided to be wide awake and to"entertain" us throughout the rest of the day ... or night.
