Eine Hand wäscht die andere

OT: Eine Hand wäscht die andere

Hermine Huntgeburth // Germany, 2012
Fiction Feature // FF2012



Tax inspector Chlodwig Pullmann (Ulrich Noethen) is happy in his small town in Northern Germany.When he has to investigate companies’ tax returns, he does it in his own special way – if desired not at all.This has made Pullmann not only very popular, he is in harmony with his fellow citizens, whose private contacts between the worlds of business and politics make life easier.Jakob Kronibus (Alexander Scheer) Pullmann’s new young boss, however, demands more efficiency from his subordinates – immediately. Switching between the real and the grotesque, the film’s witty dialogues and congenial characters sketch a scenario of everyday corruption that hits the spot.


HERMINE HUNTGEBURTH (*1955) is one of Germany's best-known female directors and was last presented in the TV section at FILMFEST HAMBURG in 2015 with Einmal Hallig and zurück.
