Berlin in the early 1990s: Hans-Georg Dahlmann is making a lot of enemies as head of the agency charged with privatizing eastern Germany's formerly state-owned businesses. His newly hired assistant, Sandra Wellmann, is one of these enemies. She has been planted in the agency by the RAF terrorist organization to spy on Dahlmann. When the head of a bank is murdered, the Federal Criminal Police Office starts to consider who might be next. As Wellmann and Dahlmann come to trust each other, the terrorist's mission is redefined. This two-part TV movie portrays the uncertainty and latent violence in a society undergoing seismic change. Cast: Petra Schmidt-Schaller, Jenny Schily, Maximilian Brückner, Ulrich Tukur, Stefanie Stappenbeck and many more. Director: Miguel Alexandre. Source: Filmfest Munich 2018

Apr 20 Maximillian Brückner on his Arctic Experience: "The funny thing is, in the beginning I thought Iina Kuustonen was the main actress and I was the main actor. Now I realise the landscape is the third main character in this series, and it's unbelievable. We were shooting yesterday and the wind was blowing like hell. You wanted to speak but your mouth was full of wind. It's a real challenge. There was one point where I was standing with Iina in front of me, and the wind was so hard that we both welled up in the scene, but it was natural. It's far from a perfect studio-made storm."

March/April On a personal matter:
I will be on vacation until late April. And I'll be offline, so no news or updates here. No, I won't visit the 'Arctic Circle' - instead a country with no snow and lots of sun.
Also, the data of all my websites have to be merged and then transferred to a new server, which means they might be unavailable at times.
Until then - Happy Easter! EFi, webmiss
