Robo

Mitya is an imaginative twelve year old boy, who loves to draw comics of super heroes and dreams of becoming an artist. His parents, who have little understanding for Mitya's creativity, however, work as robotic engineers. They have built and programmed a Universal Rescue Robot, aka ROBO, to rescue people from dangerous situations. Soon after their final tests, ROBO escapes from the research facility motivated to understand the meaning of "family." Due to ROBO's alleged malfunction, the director of the research facility deems the fled robot as a menace to society that should be destroyed at once. In his search for a family, ROBO meets Mitya and the two form a true friendship while on the run from anyone who tries to deactivate and destroy ROBO.

The German Lesson

Germany, just after the Second World War. Siggi Jepsen (Tom Gronau), a young man in juvenile detention, must write an essay on "The Joys Of Duty" as part of his punishment. The topic overwhelms Siggi so much, he suffers at first from writer's block. Once put in solitary confinement, he finds the clarity to recount his childhood during the war in a small north-German village. His memories focus on his relationship with his father, Jens Ole Jepsen (Ulrich Noethen), a police officer of the village and Max Ludwig Nansen (Tobias Moretti) a family friend and expressionist painter. Jens dedicates himself totally and meticulously to the duties of his work: to enforce the will of the Nazi Party. More specifically: to enforce the ban on the possession and creation of all modern modern art. This directly affects Max, who resists despite the dire consequences. Both Jens and Max enlist Siggi (Levi Eisenblätter) to help their differing agendas. Caught between his father's loyalty to the laws of the Nazi Party and Max's passion for expressionism, Siggi must choose between fitting in and resisting. 

 

Key Marketing Points:

  • Based on the novel by Siegfried Lenz which is considered to be one of the defining works of German post-war literature
  • Starring award winner Ulrich Noethen (Downfall), Levi Eisenblätter (Mute), Louis Hoffman (Netflix’s Dark, Red Sparrow), Johanna Wokalek (The Baader Meinhof Complex), Sonja Richter (The Homesman, Department Q), and Maria Dragus (The White Ribbon, Mary Queen of Scots)
  • Will appeal to fans of Resistance and Alone in Berlin
  • Two audio tracks: English Dub (default) and German with English subtitles
