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.
" 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.
