SOPHIA, DEATH AND ME

Production Report featured in
German Films Quarterly 03/2022

Based on musician Thees Uhlmann’s bestselling novel, actor Charly Hübner’s fiction feature debut as director is an insane, funny, touching and moving story about everything that really counts in life. Following a restless night, Reiner hears the doorbell ring. Morten de Sarg, who is in fact Reiner’s death personified, doesn’t get to dispatch him as the doorbell rings again. This time, it’s Sophia who has arranged to meet her ex-boyfriend for his mother Lore's birthday. Together, they set off on a journey that eventually leads them to Reiner's seven-year-old son Johnny whom he hasn't seen for ages… and all of this is being closely monitored by God and Archangel Michaela.
