Spring 1941: Shortly before Nazi Germany’s invasion of Russia, with economic cooperation between the two countries still in full swing, a delegation of German engineers including Hans (Jakob Diehl) travel to the Soviet Union to work on the development of optical lenses in a glass factory. War is in the air and the atmosphere is tense. When Hans accidentally causes the oven to explode and several people lose their lives, the situation escalates. Lieber Hans is an exciting historical drama with a star ensemble of German acting talent, featuring Jakob Diehl, Birgit Minichmayr, Mark Waschke and Marc Hosemann.


Alexander Mindadze (*1949) studied in Moscow at the State Film School VGIK. He has won many awards, including in 1995 the Silver Bear for Stück für einen Fahrgast [Piece for a Passenger]. His Chernobyl film Innocent Saturday ran in competition at the 2011 Berlinale.
