Apr 15 Maxi's next movie project "The Most Beautiful Couple" ("Das schönste Paar"), wirtten and directed by Sven Taddicken is already in pre-production for a shoot from April 25 to June 10, 2017. Zorro Filmverleih will release in Germany and Beta Cinema handles world sales.
The story of Malte (Maximilian Brückner), a young teacher, and his wife Liv (Luise Heyer), who gets raped by a young stranger in a tragic assault during their summer holidays. The couple shows an astonishing strength, dealing with that shocking event as rationally as possible. It takes a while to rebuild the trust in their relationship and their sexuality - but things turn out very well for the couple. Two years later, Malte meets the perpetrator again by accident. Malte cannot believe his own eyes and follows him around the city to gather information about him. But before he can address Liv or the police, it comes to a confrontation between the two men. Malte gets sucked into his longings for justice and revenge. And it looks like the real challenge for the "most beautiful couple" is still to come... Source: Berlinale Talents 2017

Feb 19 "Welcome to Hindafing": This series follows the rise and fall of ballsy provincial mayor Alfons Zischl (Maximilian Brückner) and his fictional village of Hindafing, deep in the Bavarian backwoods - far from any touristy clichés - a place neither urban nor rustic, pretending to be much hipper than it actually is. The residents of Hindafing see themselves as family-oriented and tradition conscious free thinkers, but can't live up to these high ideals. Hindafing tries to project an idyllic image of family values, while it struggles with its inner demons: By day, people go to the local soccer club and practice Bikram Yoga. At night, it's off to the swingers' club or a rendezvous with the local meth dealer. The first season focuses on the current German refugee crisis, but is by no means limited to that. It is not a one-dimensional political commentary; rather it targets nepotism and ecological hysteria as well as satirizing clerical homophobia, over-the-top political correctness and the limits of monogamy. A complex, Fargo-style look at the dark underbelly of our modern Western society: Character-driven, darkly comic and unexpectedly moving.

Feb 9 "Himmel und Hölle" (Heaven and Hell): Five hundred years ago a revolutionary priest changed the face of Christendom and the path of European civilization forever. Risking his life and academic reputation, facing damnation and purgatory, in 1517 he nailed his inflammatory Ninety-Five Theses, disputing the claim that freedom from God’s punishment for sin could be purchased with money, to the door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg. The Catholic church and the Western world would never be the same again. His name was Martin Luther.
