Did You Know?


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