With Hape Kerkeling, Luise Heyer, Sönke Möhring

Film adaptation of the autobiography of German entertainer Hape Kerkeling. This was the most viewed movie of the year and received 3 Lola awards

It is 1972 in the Ruhr Valley of Germany. Hans-Peter is nine years old, a bit chubby but full of self-confidence - mostly due to his ability to make other people laugh.
