    • Synopsis
    • Live. Love. Dance. Now! CHUCKS, the new film by Sabine Hiebler and Gerhard Ertl (Coming of Age), tells the featherlight story of growing up between life and death. Full of humor, at times rebelliously loud, then extremely tender – completely in the spirit of the literary version it is based on, the successful novel by Cornelia Travnicek about which Clemens J. Setz once wrote: “If I were to get stuck in a lift with a character of contemporary literature, I would want it to be Mae. I don’t know whether I would come out safe and sound, but it would be worth it.”
