In Ich & Kaminsky, a vain but unsuccessful cultural critic plans to write a biography about an aged artist who once caused furore in the art world as a blind painter, but has fallen into oblivion. The journalist calculates to go viral with his book, which he wants to publish straight after the artist's death, and he manages to break the daily routine of the painter which is marked by age, loneliness and home care. With the promise that he is going to meet his early love, the writer takes the old guy on a journey across Europe. The conceited journalist thinks that he is the clever one, but he has no clue that the old man is actually using him so that he can escape from his over-protective daughter.

Good Bye, Lenin! star Daniel Brühl and Jesper Christensen play the leads, while Geraldine Chaplin takes the role of Kaminsky‘s old flame. As a German-Belgian co-production, Ich & Kaminsky is produced by Uwe Schott from X Filme Creative Pool (Cloud Atlas [+see also:

The project received backing from Film-und Medienstiftung NRW, the German Federal Film Fund (DFFF), German Federal Film Board (FFA), Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg,  Eurimages and MEDIA.

The German distributor X Verleih will release Ich & Kaminsky while the world sales are handled by Michael Weber from Cologne-based The Match Factory.
