Mit heftigen, unwiderstehlich rhythmisierten Sätzen und in unvergesslichen Bildern erzählt Oskar Roehler vom Berliner Underground

Ende der 1930er-Jahre umwirbt NS-Propagandaminister Joseph Goebbels den Schauspieler Ferdinand Marian, den er als Hauptdarsteller für den Film "Jud Süß" von Veit Harlan gewinnen will. Dieser willigt schließlich ein, in der Absicht, den Protagonisten zum Sympathieträger zu machen. Doch genau diese Eitelkeit nutzen Goebbels und Harlan, um die antijüdische Hetzwirkung des Films noch zu steigern. Eine filmhistorisch raffiniert zusammengefügte Groteske, die mit den Mitteln der Daily Soap inklusive einer trivialisierten Schwundstufe des Melodrams nach der Verantwortung der deutschen Filmindustrie während des Dritten Reichs fragt.

One day, he's offered the starring role in the new Nazi Film Department's anti-Semitic production, an adaptation of the novel Jew Suess. The part wouldmake him a star. Marian turns it down but finally gives in to Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels' (Moritz Bleibtreu) unrelenting pressure and even worse, his charm. The actor unwittingly plays into the Nazis' plans and his attempt to give the film's Jewish protagonist a human touch makes the film the most successful propaganda film ever made A heartwrenching story about the seductiveness - and price - of evil"--Container

The setting is Germany, right after re-unification. A social-worker, with the mission to bring a Polish family to their destination (an immigration camp in a little provincial town called Rassau), is kidnapped. Chief inspector Koern and his girl-friend start to investigate in this matter in Rassau, exploring a world of obsessive sex and an over-whelming irrational love of the German nation, which infiltrates everyone's mind. Racism doesn't start with shaved hair and boots but rather in the middle of society itself (adapted from IMDb)

Die Hölle ist ein TV-Event aus Deutschland Gregor Samsa ist ein abgehalfterter Regisseur, Ende Fünfzig, ein ramponierter Typ in einer ramponierten Gesellschaft, der sich in Konsumtempeln und Puffs herumtreibt, um seine Zeit totzuschlagen. Dabei lässt er sein verpfuschtes Leben Revue passieren. Die Tatsache, dass er es als "Kulturschaffender" vergeudet hat, trägt nicht gerade zu seiner Freude bei. Mit Hohn und Spott macht er sich über seine Erinnerungen her, über seine falschen Freunde und Wegbegleiter, seine Scheinerfolge und naiven Ambitionen von einst und schreibt dabei seine eigene, sehr schwarze Kulturgeschichte. Eine sarkastische Abrechnung mit der Sinnentleertheit der Medien- und Konsumgesellschaft, ein hemmungsloser, provokanter Roman, der mit drastischer Komik immer auch von der unstillbaren Sehnsucht nach Schönheit erzählt.
