The German six feet under
24 September 2020 | by markusknuefkenSee all my reviews

This is a very, a very good show! The first thing to say is, that the actors are overall absolutely convincing. Anke Engelke and Thorsten Merten are a fantastic od couple. Merten also had the idea for the show. He is a excellent German actor with roots in east Germany. Best known for his work with Andreas Dresen. Just to mention his character Chris Düring in the wonderful tragic comedy HALBE TREPPE. It is a pleasure to see him teaming up with German superstar of comedy and drama films, the one and only Anke Engelke. But there are also young rising actors like Aaron Hilmer who had a skyrocketing performance in the surprise movie hit of 2018, DAS SCHÖNSTE MÄDCHEN DER WELT. Nina Gummich Johannes Zeiler, Juri Winkler and mean but charming grandma Gudrun Ritter. They all make the Fazius - Family - Clan a real pleasure to watch. The Dialog is well written and the scripts have a wonderful balance in drama and comic relief. Life an death are brothers in arms and this show helps us to get prepared for what is waiting out there for all of us. If it is the sudden death of a loved one or the way how you want to be remembered by the ones you left behind ... The showrunner and the directors did a marvelous job and we have to thank German super - dooper - megastar Matthias Schweighöfer because he is the founder of Pantaleon, the Production Company that made this diamond of a German dramedy possible. For those about to Rock, we salute you!!! ... I really hope that there will be a second season!
