    • Synopsis
    • The actor Otto Kullberg (Henry Hübchen) is a man women love and men like. Sometimes he drinks a little too much. When his excessive drinking leads him to miss a day on the set of his new film and it seems like he’s about to blow the whole thing, a younger actor (Markus Hering) is hired to shoot all the scenes a second time as a backup solution. Otto Kullberg, a man of fast wit and driven by his need to be at the center of attention, finds himself forced to assert his role on the set, to decide on his role as a man torn between the love for two women, and to redefine his role in his own life. Many films ago, there was a love story between Otto and his partner Bettina (Corinna Harfouch), who is now the wife of the director (Sylvester Groth). Can he still maintain the distinction between film and reality? In the duel between the actors on set, no one wants to be the loser. They all love the truth and yet everyone lies.
      Not to mention, you really shouldn’t mix whisky and vodka.
