German series 8 days at the Berlin film festival : imagine the end of the world

disaster, what does that mean? The deceased was a theatre-maker Einar Schleef, the actor Fabian Hinrichs, "was already shopping for a catastrophe", the mundane aisle in the supermarket. Good Point. However, there are events that probably explains the majority of viable to be a Disaster. For example, if an Asteroid coming toward the earth, and depopulate the planet strongly threatens.

this is Precisely the scenario, the designs of the German series "8 days", the Directors Stefan Ruzowitzky ("The counterfeiters") and Michael Krummenacher ("homeland"). The comet is on the way, tried to launch nuclear missiles has already failed, now the eponymous time remains until the big Crash just yet.

is of course known, in 1998, for example, competed in Hollywood with "Armageddon" and "Deep Impact" two end-time spectacle with a comet-participation. With actress Christiane Paul, for all the love for a great Action-Drama, the comparisons in the place: "If anything, the reference is more of Lars von Trier's 'Melancholia'."

"don't forgive anything, but understand everything."

is True. The eight-piece, of Sky and of the Munich-based company's New Super-produced series in which Paul and Hinrichs siblings play, cares less for the outward spectacle rather than for the social Disintegration in the face of the Apocalypse. Especially in the case of Ruzowitzky and Krummenacher Europe, of all places, lies in the so-called Kill Zone, the suspected impact Area.

sets The escape movements on the one hand, in the USA, to escape where the career-oriented young politicians Herrmann (Fabian Hinrichs) sites with his pregnant girlfriend (Nora Woods). And on the other side to Russia, a destination for the Doctor, Susanne (Christiane Paul), her husband (Mark Waschke), and the two children. And, as Paul describes, the existing political situation to be reversed: "The Polish smugglers are laughing at us, because we arrive with Euros. Sorry, the ruble is now on the wanted currency.“

While your character, with that extreme, but morally understandable, for the family is fighting, is not Herrmann the classic sympathy carrier. A Materialist, the things slip away and seems to be the Next – which Hinrichs was important to him not as "an abstract Monster". The premise he sums up in a sentence by Hannah Arendt: "do Not forgive anything, but understand everything." And goes on shiny. "8 days" shows people in the last days of their sadism, acting out (as a Devid Striesow played building materials dealer with a private bunker), such that "moral stop signs to be placed, in spite of everything", as Christiane Paul says, the other, located in the hedonism of Sex, drugs, parties, rush, and others, for the strange Saviour to connect (including a crucifixion trip on the river Spree). Henry Hübchen, who plays the father of Susanne and Herrmann, experienced a late Coming-out, and destroyed inventories between burning furniture in the street his collected Liquor before the good stuff "falls of the comet".

live every day as if it were the last?

"The Exciting thing is that none of us really know, how radical, how aggressive we are, our life would defend," says Christiane Paul. "The series is operated so that," says Fabian Hinrichs, "people who understand life as a kind of social game, hanging out of these secure Together ripped". It'll suggest a permanent, you should only work on lists, in order to understand what is really important in life: "5 things you must do before you die', or ,10 000 places, the must-have seen'". Such a Surrogate not more help in "8 days". Here it is existential.

In the single scene that the two of them together, are they all of a sudden in a hospital, completely alienated everyone on the go with the own Plan to rescue the most Important, whatever that may be. Clearly, in this Moment, but also what Hübchens figure packs once in the beautiful sentence: "You can't fix on the last meters of his life."

of Course, this aims to be about eight episodes rousing end-time drama so well into the bad Conscience of Europe. Where you, as Hinrichs accounted for it, "heads egg for Breakfast, without the struggle for Survival, without the need for gigantic garbage, the plastic from cables, piles to burn, to get to the copper". In this respect, the Asteroid brings a little bit of justice in the world.

The question remains, of course: the destructive rocks a message? Live every day as if it were the last? "Carpe diem, that is the worst job ever," says Hinrichs. "This is the way to disaster, every day would be hell." Maybe you need to humble yourself, therefore, with less high moving. With the reminder, for example, pronounce a of Murathan Muslu played a COP in the series: "If we're all like animals, can be 8 days too damn long."
