Ich back mir einen Mann

OT: Ich back mir einen Mann

Andrea Katzenberger // Germany, 2003
Fiction Feature // FF2003



“I can’t bake myself one!” is a single woman’s typical answer when asked when she’ll find herself a new man. Hanna (Nina Petri), widowed mother of 8-year-old Leonie (Laura und Sarah Bellini), works as an editor for children’s books. As Christmas approaches, she makes a very special dough. Her daughter’s faith in magic, combined with her own longing, a full moon and a thunder storm make the oven explode, and out comes Balthasar Blitz (Axel Milberg), the first self-baked man! A magical romantic comedy by an award-winning director.


ANDREA KATZENBERGER (*1962) is a director and screenplay writer who has been making films and TV series since the 1990s.
