Storyline

Hella is around 30 and works in a pharmacy. She is waiting for the right man to step into her life, but as she has a certain affinity for losers, she is kind of disillusionized. When she gets to know Levin, a dentist student who likes cars most, her dreams seem to come true. Levin has a very rich grandfather who likes her at first glance. The old man thinks of changing his last will to the condition that Levin has to marry Hella in order to inherit his fortunes. Like in a fairy-tale the door to a new life opens for Hella, but can she take it? Written by Oliver Heidelbach

Alternate Versions

According to director Rainer Kaufmann the following scenes were cut from the final release:
  • Originally there was a scene after the funeral of Margot where Dieter tells Hella about his relationship with Margot. According to the director this was cut because the next scene does explain the same and works better.
  • The fight between Dieter and Levin was cut for violence (possibly to secure a "Not under 12" rating). In the uncut scene you saw how they fight and how levin loses his teeth.
  • The scene where Alma explores the house was longer. This was cut to shorten running time.

A genuine pleasure
4 April 1999 | by BlamuSee all my reviews

" Die Apothekerin " - a film, which stands out against some German productions of the last years doing good. The three main persons of the action were greatly filled: The cool Katja Riemann as pharmacist, which is rather innocently entangled into the events, Jürgen Vogel as a somewhat eccentric and sometimes calculating medical student Levin and Richy Müller as convict and its friend lets arise at no time boredom. The film is characterised not only by interesting characters, but also by its great black humor. Result: A genuine pleasure.
