Goodbye Berlin (Tschick)

Part of the European Perspectives Strand


Acclaimed German director Fatih Akin delivers a charming and enthralling film adaptation of Wolfgang Herrndorf’s best-selling young adult novel Tschick. With his mother in rehab and his father off on a ‘business trip’ with his assistant, 14-year-old Maik (Tristan Göbel) is set to spend summer alone at his parents’ villa. He envisages a boring summer...that is until his wonderfully oddball Russian classmate Tschick (Anand Batbileg) arrives in a stolen Lada. Cue a road trip to be cherished as the mismatched pair gets into all sorts of trouble and even a little romance.

Supported by German Films.
