»Die Ente bleibt draußen!« A film obeisance to the German humorist Loriot. To mark Loriot’s 100th birthday, André Schäfer paints a multi-facetted portrait of the best-known German humorist: With numerous film excerpts from his famous sketches, rare documentary footage of Vicco von Bülow from the early days of his career and interviews with companions, colleagues, experts and fans. The film remembers the inventor of the bulbous-nosed Knollennasenmännchen and explores the secret of his very German universe. It’s also a homage to the German post-war economic miracle and Loriot’s singular symbiosis of Prussianism and anarchic humour.
Since the 2000s, ANDRÉ SCHÄFER (*1966 in Troistdorf) has been making award-winning documentaries, including Der Schauspieler Ulrich Tukur, which was shown in 2019 at FILMFEST HAMBURG.
