Hannelore Elsner is one of Germany’s most well-known and respected actresses. We want to accompany the actress, who is approaching her 70th birthday, but has managed to remain extremely youthful and lively. She takes us on a journey through her life, uncomplicated and unpretentious. When we shoot at one of her film sets in Bavaria, she invites us to visit places of her childhood. She shows us her Munich, her Berlin, her Frankfurt. We accompany her on film sets, during readings and in the theater. Our camera gets very close to her – we look into her face, experience her world, her laughter, her happiness.
