Eberhofer and Birkenberger are looking for the webcam girl killer
“Kaiserschmarrndrama” celebrates its free TV premiere. In the seventh Eberhofer thriller there is wild protest, would-be rebels and a farewell.
Anyone who may have already watched the new Eberhofer thriller “Guglhupfgeschwader” (since August 4) in the cinema at the weekend can look forward to a second look on Monday (8 August). Because the first one shows the predecessor “Kaiserschmarrndrama” (2021) at 8:15 p.m., with which the Munich Film Festival also opened last year.
That’s what the “Kaiserschmarrn drama” is about
The idyll of the Lower Bavarian policeman Franz Eberhofer (Sebastian Bezzel, 51) is once again in danger. This is less because a chubby webcam star was murdered – Franz is approaching this case with the usual slowness. Unfortunately, his annoying but helpful co-investigator Rudi Birkenberger (Simon Schwarz, 51) is currently in a wheelchair and blames Franz for it.
But Eberhofer’s peace is only really threatened by his girlfriend Susi (Lisa Maria Potthoff, 44) and his brother Leopold (Gerhard Wittmann, born 1964), who are building a stuffy semi-detached house with a communal sauna next to the Eberhoferhof building. Above all, this goes against the grain of Papa Eberhofer (Eisi Gulp, 66).
And as if village life with Franconian rockers and marijuana meatballs wasn’t colorful enough, Franz also has to discover that his friends, the butcher Simmerl (Stephan Zinner, 48) and the heating bungler Flötzinger (Daniel Christensen, 43), are regular customers of the murder victim were …
Niederkaltenkirchen anti-heroes and three fan favourites
With “Kaiserschmarrndrama”, the Niederkaltenkirchen anti-hero ensemble, led by director Ed Herzog (56), serves a lovingly, detailed and extremely witty book adaptation that is in no way inferior to the previous films. What’s more, for Simon Schwarz it’s “perhaps even the best of the series so far,” as the Austrian actor explained spot on news on the sidelines of the film premiere a year ago. “One of the reasons I find it so successful is that it also deals with more serious topics. That’s always good for a comedy. A good comedy must also be able to function as a drama and this film could do that,” says the film expert.
The reunion with actresses Christine Neubauer (60) and Olivia Pascal (65) also makes the film well worth seeing. After more than ten years, Neubauer played again in a movie – this time she whirls across the screen with blond hair. And when it comes to the name Olivia Pascal, fans of the 1980s hit series “Irgendwie und Sowieso” (1986) and “Die Schwarzwaldklinik” (1985-1996) go into raptures.
But despite all the cheerfulness surrounding the Bavarian Bond, this film also has a touch of sadness. Because it is dedicated to the husband of the successful author and Eberhofer creator Rita Falk (58). Former police officer Robert Falk died in July 2020 at the age of 60.
And in the credits, Ludwig the dog is duly celebrated again. It was the last appearance for the fan favorite – film dog Joker died unexpectedly at the end of June 2021, as announced on his fan page. In “Guglhupfgeschwader” the three-legged dog colleague Xaver joins as “Hinkelotta” …
