Did You Know?


All feature films by director Veit Helmer have been flops in German theaters. His last film Fiddlesticks (2014) had the worst per-screen average (PTA) of all new films (No.31) and quickly vanished from the theaters. Even for Helmer this was an unexpected failure because it featured well-known German actors and usually children's films do good box-office in Germany. [2015].
