“Dear Kurt” is the new directorial work by Til Schweiger, in which the former “Lindenstraße” star also takes on the male lead again. At his side are well-known faces such as Franziskamachens (“Golden Twenties”), Jasmin Gerat (“Man does what man can”), all-purpose weapon Heiner Lauterbach (“Welcome to the Hartmanns”) and who is currently already on with “Hunting Season”. Marie Burchard represented on local screens. Peter Simonischek also seems to be making an important contribution. The Austrian gained international fame primarily through his furious appearance in the art house hit “Toni Erdmann”. Newcomer Levi Wolter takes on the title role.
“Dear Kurt” will start in German cinemas nationwide on September 15, 2022.
After we last showed you Til Schweiger as a merciless villain in the trailer for the hearty historical action game “Medieval”, the mime and filmmaker now presents himself to us in a more emotional way. The new trailer is sure to bring back memories of his successful dramas for some fans like “head honey” or “barefoot”. “Dear Kurt” is based on a novel by “Mängelexemplar” author Sarah Kuttner, which you can order here, for example:

After their mutual separation, Jana (Jasmin Gerat) and Kurt (Til Schweiger) decide to share custody of their son, who is also named Kurt (Levi Wolter). Big Kurt moves to Brandenburg with his new girlfriend Lena (Franziskamachens) to be able to live near little Kurt. So the child doesn’t have to travel too far to commute between mom’s apartment in Berlin and dad’s house in the country every week.
Even if she would actually rather live in the city, the new circumstances are not a problem for Lena. She gets along brilliantly with her partner’s bright offspring. Then one day the boy dies tragically in a fall. Lena would like to support her lover who is completely upset. But she too was emotionally hit by the death of her stepson, who had just been alive and kicking. So the young relationship faces an immense test…
