PANTALEON Films announces the successful completion of the film shooting for the bestselling film version of GENERATION BEZIEHUNGSUNFÄHIG. Due to the restrictions by the health authorities to contain the coronavirus pandemic, the shooting had been paused between March and June. Now the time has finally come, and in compliance with the highest hygiene standards to protect all employees, the team of director Helena Hufnagel successfully completed the feature film project in co-production with Warner Bros. Entertainment and Brainpool TV.
The author Hilly Martinek (HONIG IM KOPF, ROCCA VERÄNDERT DIE WELT) and Helena Hufnagel were responsible for the script of GENERATION BEZIEHUNGSUNFÄHIG. The successful non-fiction book with the same name, published by Edel Verlag, was written by Michael Nast.
The focus is on Micha and Ghost, two city dwellers who are unwilling to be tied down, with Frederick Lau (DAS PERFEKTE GEHEIMNIS, NIGHTLIFE, 4 BLOCKS, VICTORIA) and Luise Heyer (DER JUNGE MUSS MUSS AN DIE FRISCHE LUFT, DAS SCHÖNSTE PAAR, EINMAL BITTE ALL). In addition, the cast includes Henriette Confurius (GOLDEN TWENTIES, THE COLD HEART), Maximilian Brückner (WONDERFUL, HINDAFING, THE BEST PAIR), Verena Altenberger (MAGDA MAKES THE GREATEST OF ALL WORLDS) and Tedros Teclebrhan (BAD BANKS, SYSTEM SPRENGER).
Like most singles of his generation, Micha has a "problem": he is apparently unable to have a relationship. But he just uses this status to justify his lifestyle. After dating, he no longer calls and prefers to swiped to the next woman, who hopefully looks the same as on her profile photo. But when he falls in love with his female reflection, Ghost, he suddenly finds himself on the other side of dating-hell. And while Micha still believes that he is acting extremely smart with his advances, he is already been ghosted by her. Unfortunately, Ghost has no desire for a romantic Micha.
The film receives production funding and success loans from the Film- und Medienstiftung NRW, the FilmFernsehFonds Bayern, the Deutscher Filmförderfonds, the Filmförderungsanstalt and the Mitteldeutsche Medienförderung. The cinema release is scheduled for March 25, 2021, and it is distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures.
