All About Me

Caroline Link

All About Me is the sweet and touching story of beloved German entertainer ‘Hape’ Kerkeling based on his autobiography Der Junge muss an die frische Luft.

"Will have audiences of all ages howling with laughter..." 

Ruhr Valley, Germany, 1972. Hans-Peter is a pudgy nine-year-old growing up in the security of his cheerful and loving family. He might not be the most popular boy, but he has a talent for making others laugh, which he refines on a daily basis in his grandmother’s corner shop. However, dark shadows soon loom over the boy’s life as his mum struggles with illness and depression. Hans-Peter’s hardworking father leaves him mostly in the care of his two grandmas and older brother. Their love and care enable Hans-Peter to survive the ensuing emotional turmoil and use his comedic talents to heal his own wounds while making people laugh along with him.

Nominated for 6 and winner of 3 Lolas (German Film Awards), All About Me by Academy Award Winner Caroline Link will have audiences of all ages howling with laughter while also dealing with issues of mental health.
