The ARD-docu-drama about Carl Borgward : business man with no business sense

The 50s and 60s are considered to be Phase of the economic miracle. The shock of the unexpected bankruptcy of the third largest German car manufacturer triggered in 1961, has been largely forgotten. the ARD TV movie "The affair Borgward" is reminiscent of the wayward Bremer corporate Patriarch, known as a business man without a business sense, the industry story.

As the son of a coal merchant Carl Friedrich Wilhelm Borgward has brought it to a mechanic and the captain of Industry. His car sounding to wear woman's name as Isabella or Arabella. At the wheel of a Borgward it is again: "We look back because we are driving to happiness" – so the advertising slogan at the time. The head of the company is progressing and on its way. As the Bremen mayor to visit him for a date, he meets Borgward around behind the Desk of his office. The inventor of the constructs of the trim strip up to the transmission all by yourself, potters prefer to be in a shed next to the Assembly halls. Borgward is an artist. A, the pencil, the Engineer is interested in and the screws, bowl in Hand. A worrying drop in sales in the United States? Pish-posh. Objections by the concerned authorized signatories as of iron Borgward brusquely. Equally provocative, he encountered the stiff Bremer notables, the need to reassign this upstart reluctantly, the Federal cross of merit.

instinct for sure: Thomas Thieme

pride comes before the fall: Just a little later Borgward occurs in front of the staff to explain with a brittle voice, he's going to fight for the preservation of their jobs. This Moment gets under the skin. Thanks to his mix of physical presence and instinct for a safe game, Thomas Thieme shines as a visionary Dreamer, soon-to-be an icy Wind in the face, blows. The notorious advice that are resistant to the boss of the company produces everything that is mobile, truck, PWK, race cars and even a helicopter. However, his models, all in small quantities thrown on the market, not reindeer. Banks to turn the money faucet.

Now, the Senate of Bremen to vouch for the 50 million Mark. The mayor is facing a tricky Dilemma: Should he violate the basic principle of independent economic or 22,000 people unemployed? This pack is the end theme of the Film prepared with a mixture of Biopic and economic crime. Instead of the guiding Hand of a Commissioner only sleazy politicians and shady officials, however. All of the alleged renovators Johannes Semler (Bruno Eyron), the BMW Supervisory Board chief will do all it takes to drive the competing operating properly on the wall. Is denigrated also highlights the role of the "mirror", of the tumbling economic giant in the most unfavorable Moment, even as a "hobbyist".

As a "hobbyist" denigrated

The harrowing Drama is a well-researched example of the cooperation between the public and private sectors to the economic breaking point. Unfortunately, the directed by Marcus O. rosenmüller, who contributed the book, a personal hand-written to miss. This may be due to the strict format requirements of the Broadcasting slot. As the last of the "Aenne Burda – The economic miracle woman" produces witnesses to the Borgward Film with its mix of archival materials and provided time-Interviews with the habituation needy impression of a docu-drama. The appearance of borgward daughter, Monika, in addition to the Bremen, Borgward-monument in February of 2018 in front of the camera, to quote with a husky voice from her diary, to give a fictitious workup of an authentic painting. The combination of different image sources promotes an aesthetically diffuse overall impression. Exciting and compassionate, the story is told but still.
