February 2009 - 2019 On a personal matter: 📯 10-year anniversary! 🥇
In February 2009, my small German fan page with the name „gesucht wird : Maximilian Brückner“ went online @ I choose the name because in the early years of his career Maximilian Brückner crossed red carpets at record speed, vanished and then had to be recaptured by festival directors, directors or actors of his films. There are videos to proof that 😝
In April 2010, this English-language offshoot named „in search of : Maximilian Brückner“ followed, and in March 2011 the Facebook page @
I wanted to put a (at least halfway reputable) page about one of the best German actors on the net, who incidentally is one of the nicest people I have the pleasure to know. So thank you to everyone who over the years has helped me with information, moral support, or their technical skills - and I hope they continue doing so in the future. 💐 And of course many thanks to Maxi! 💐 And this is the end of the virtual lard. ~ EFi, Webmiss

You like the Coen Brothers? You like House of Cards? Then you might very well fall head over heels in love with "Welcome to Hindafing", a hilarious, Fargo-style look at the dark underbelly of Western civilization, Bavarian-style. Equal parts satire, drama and bawdy, clever comedy, "Welcome to Hindafing" tells the story of the rise and fall (mostly “fall”) of provincial mayor Alfons Zischl, Jr. and the fictional town of Hindafing, a village so deep in the Bavarian backwoods that it doesn’t even have its own Autobahn exit (yet). Its soccer team aspires to qualify for the ninth division next season, its nightlife is dominated by a truck stop and a beer hall, and its biggest employer is a faux-organic slaughterhouse. Welcome, indeed.
A 2nd season is currently in pre-production, with production slated to begin in February.
Maximilian Brückner plays Mayor Alfons Zischl, an actor MHz Choice subscribers will recognize from his recent starring role as Martin Luther in "Reformation".
