German Movie Night “Herbert”

Goethe-Zentrum Kampala UGCS would like to invite you again to our monthly German Movie Night. This time we will be screening the film by Thomas Stuber: “Herbert”.


The former East German professional boxer Herbert, a man as big as a mountain, earns his living as a debt collector and bouncer – his fists and muscles being his full asset. Besides, he trains the upcoming boxer Eddy. At the first time Herbert gets muscle cramps, he tries to cover them up, but eventually he is diagnosed with the disease ALS. He now has to learn to live with restrictions, cramps and a wheelchair while his former environment has no need for him. He finds his life in ruins: He keeps his girlfriend Marlene at bay, for years his work had been more important to him than his family and he hasn’t seen his daughter Sandra since she was 6 years old. He now has to reconcile and straighten everything he has done wrong…

Director: Thomas Stuber
Year: 2015, 105 min
