Florian David Fitz bikes to Belgium
- Christian Zübert is currently filming his new film, Hin und Weg, whose main character, affected by a terminal illness, is looking for release
Bavarian director and screenwriter Christian Zübert (who wrote Lammbock and Dreiviertelmond [+see also:
film profile], but also the screenplay for Dampfelnudel Blues [+see also:
film profile] by Ed Herzog, released on August 1) is currently filming Hin und Weg, with Florian David Fitz.
The actor from Munich, who, since the road movie Vincent Wants to Sea [+see also:
film profile] (2010) has kept busy (he rejoined the team of Männerherzen [+see also:
film profile] for the second part, directed his first film as the director/actor, Jesus Loves Me, and played in Measuring the World [+see also:
film profile] as well as Quality Time [+see also:
film profile], on screens since mid-September), is once again of the move: Hin und Weg, written by Ariane Schröder, tells the story of a man who goes on a biking trip with his wife and friends from Germany to Belgium, because there, euthanasia is legal, and, as he plans to announce to his relatives, he has an incurable disease affecting his nervous system.
On this great journey, Fitz is in good company: the group includes Julia Koschitz (his wife), Jürgen Vogel, Miriam Stein (Lotte in Young Goethe in Love [+see also:
film profile]), Johannes Allmayer (one of Fitz’s regular accomplices) and Hannelore Elsner.
Hin und Weg is produced by Majestic, which plans on releasing the film on German screens next autumn. The filming should continue until the end of the month.
