HONIG IM KOPF

Head Full of Honey

Till Schweiger
Germany, 2014, 139 Min

A touching family story about a doctor suffering from Alzheimer's disease who is taken on one last long journey by his family. The attempt to cure the father of dementia fails, yet the family comes together again. A film that takes death seriously, celebrates life and gives comfort.

For this film Til Schweiger brought together a cast of celebrity German actors, from Dieter Hallervorden via Samuel Finzi and Mehmet Kurtuluş to Katharina Thalbach. With 7,2 million viewers, HEAD FULL OF HONEY made it into the Top 10 of German productions since 1968, where it remains the only drama with a serious core among adventure films and comedies, from the Winnetou Western to the “Schoolgirl Report”. In the meantime the film has also been successfully adapted as a stage play, the popularity of the US remake with Nick Nolte in the leading role fell short of expectations however. HEAD FULL OF HONEY was shot in Hamburg, Schleswig-Holstein, South Tyrol, Venice and; in Prignitz, in the state of Brandenburg. BB
