Superman? James Bond? They were yesterday. To battle Lord Vakuum, to save the world from speechlessness, we need a hero of a different calibre. We need Hermann! Coming soon to the cinema with you!
His name is Hermann, just Hermann. When the terrible news from Europe reaches him, Hermann is just eating his soup. He sees on the news that his best friend in Berlin has disappeared. His friend is only one of many victims of the abduction. Those who returned lost the thing most precious to Hermann: language. This transforms the inconspicuous man into a hero; Hermann becomes German. A relentness battle begins, for his adversary, this spectre who always negates and wants to rob humanity of its language is none other than Lord Vakuum. Only German knows how to fight the evil lord, for he knows, “Grießbrei bleibt Grießbrei. Und Kriegsbeil bleibt Kriegsbeil.”
Thus begins the story of GERMAN – One Word is Not Enough, which is probably the greatest cinema event of this year. Or next year. Or... The only problem with this extraordinary film is that it does not yet exist. Despite the fact that the film has caused such a sensation already. The pertinent trade magazines like Hollywood Hero News and Marvellous Movie Magazine were ecstatic. This film has everything that a good action thriller needs: nearly unbearable excitement, impressive special effects, wit, sex – even a paternoster lift.
About 100,000 people have already seen the trailer for the movie produced by the Goethe-Institut and now they want more. They want to know: Can Hermann alias German save his best friend? Will humanity be at a loss for words? Will Marie not only gain spoonerisms, but a place in Hermann’s heart? Will Lord Vakuum’s creation R0883RY go the way of all mortal vacuum cleaners? And when will the Grießbrei finally be served?
The only question that already has an answer is: Who is Hermann’s dubious best friend anyway? “An” answer? No, thousands of answers, and more every day. For GERMAN is the only movie in which viewers can immortalize themselves – with just a few clicks.
So, come on it! Join us on our silver screen!
