Tschick

With actors Alexander Scheer and Uwe Bohm.

Director Fatih Akin’s film is an adaptation of Wolfgang Herrndorf’s 2010 novel Tschick (Why We Took the Car), widely considered unfilmable. The film follows two teenagers (Alexander Scheer, Uwe Bohm) who steal a car and take a road trip through Eastern Germany, discovering the country and themselves in a touching and comical coming-of-age romp.
