Storyline

Popular joker, wheeler-dealer and heckler Till Eulenspiegel cleverly exposes the stupid greed of Lübeck burgomaster Klaas Wüllenwever, who vows to revenge the humiliation in order to restore his shaken authority in city council, as he plans to demand a plenipotentiary mandate to wage war on the main Hansa city's Ostee rivals, including the Danish realm and Dutch republic. As a trap, Klaas orders Till's patrician first ex Kathrin incarcerated, while his soldiers fail to hunt down elusive disguise-master Till. Kathrin sends to Till her cocky but resourceful kid daughter Marie, who escapes from the nunnery orphanage to commandeer Till as 'her helper' to free mother. After a daring plan to get Copernicus's master key invention, they return to Lübeck, where it's truth time, changing Till's and other lives forever. Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

Some of the characters have similarities with historical characters of the 16th century in Germany. Klaas Küllenwever, who in the movie is the mayor of Lübeck", is a reference to the real-life Jürgen Wullenwever, mayor of Lübeck from 1533-1535, who also wanted to finance his war against other countries by melting the church treasure of gold and silver. Professor Nicolaus Kopernikel from Erfurt is a reference to the astronomer Nicolaus Copernicus, who, like the character, discovered the Heliocentrism, but never lived in Erfurt. See more »

Goofs

When Eulenspiegel is pretending to be a painter and is showing the mayor of Lübeck "his" paintings he also shows Rembrandt's "Man with the Golden Helmet" and "The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Nicolaes Tulp". Those paintings were painted in in the 17th century, while the movie is clearly set in the 16th century. See more »
