"A renowned actor named Otto is the epitome of the problematic but beloved ladies man. Even when drunk he still knows more about filmmaking than does the amateur who is directing him in his latest movie. But what should the unreliable star do when a local actor joins the crew as his understudy? Comic situations arise not only because of the well-known environment, but also from an inclination to authentically capture the various relationships"--Written by Pusan International Film Festival

Vierzig Jahre : ein Lebensbericht by Günter De Bruyn( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in German and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Günter de Bruyn war ohne Zweifel einer der großen Schriftsteller der DDR. Mit seinen kritischen Romanen gelang ihm das seltene Kunststück, in Ost- und Westdeutschland gleichermaßen Erfolge zu feiern. Nach dem Ende der DDR sah er, dass es an der Zeit war nochmal zurück zu schauen. Nach seinen Kindheitserinnerungen in "Zwischenbilanz: Eine Jugend in Berlin" veröffentlichte er 1996 mit "Vierzig Jahre. Ein Lebensbericht" seine ganz persönlichen Eindrücke aus vierzig Jahren DDR. Mit leisen, aber gerade dadurch umso eindrucksvolleren und glaubhafteren Worten schildert Günter de Bruyn das Leben eines kritischen Geistes in einem Staat, in dem Kritik stets mit Gefahren verbunden war. Wie staatliche Zensur immer wieder in vorauseilende Selbstzensur überging, wie fein die Linie zwischen innerer Emigration und gleichgültigem Mitläufertum sein kann, erforscht Günter de Bruyn in dieser Autobiographie kritisch und selbstkritisch

Dem Selbstmord nah, lernt er Hermine, eine Kurtisane, kennen. Durch ihre Hilfe gelangt er zur Einsicht, dass der Mensch viel mehr ist, als Harry erwartete
