- Holger Haase has finished shooting Da geht noch was, in which the lead actor from Vincent Wants to Sea moves back in to his childhood bedroom
Television director Holger Haase a few days ago finished shooting his first feature film for cinema, Da geht noch was, starring Florian David Fitz, who made a name for himself with the series Doctor's Diary then as Niklas in the series Men in the City before becoming Vincent in Ralph Huettner’s Vincent Wants to Sea (1.11 million admissions in 2010, Golden Lola for Best German Film in 2011 and Lola for Best Actor). The actor, who has been out in German and Austrian cinemas since October 25 in Detlev Buck’s latest film, Austrian-German 3D costume adventure film Measuring the World, has also just finished filming Jesus Loves Me, his first feature not only as co-screenwriter but also as main actor and director.
In Da geht noch was, scripted by Jens-Frederik Otto, Fitz plays Conrad, a young father who visits his parents, Carl (Henry Hübchen from Andreas Dresen’s Whisky with Vodka [+see also:

film profile], also just on set of Jesus Loves Me in which he plays Gabriel) and Helene (Leslie Malton), as little as possible, in particular to avoid his father’s constant nagging. But when he drops by their house on his way off on holiday, he finds out that his mother has decided to leave Carl. As the latter has become unable to move after a fall, Conrad has to move back into his old room to look after him.
Da geht noch was is produced by Harald Kügler and Viola Jäger for Olga Film with the support of the DFFF, the FFA, the German ministry of culture, and FFF Baviara. Since mid-September, shooting had been ongoing in Munich and Morocco. Constantin Film is to release the film in Germany on June 6, 2013.
