» Leander Haussmann’s Stasi Comedy » revolves around Ludger Fuchs ( David Kross ), who was investigating undercover for the state security under the orders of Lieutenant Colonel Siemens ( Henry Hübchen ) in the late 1980s . His mission: to spy on the freethinking artist scene in Prenzlauer Berg. At first, Ludger, posing as a poet, dutifully delivers his information. But then he falls in love with Natalie ( Deleila Piasko ). Not only is she extremely attractive, she also inspires the young man like a classic muse.
At the same time, in the trailer we see Ludger as an older gentleman (now: Jörg Schüttauf ) in our present. At the side of his wife Corinna ( Margarita Broich ), their children and a curious historian ( Tom Schilling ), the hero of the resistance against the GDR regime opens his Stasi files. How could this happen? Where is Lieutenant Colonel Siemens? And what happened to Ludger’s great love Natalie? You have to go to the cinema to find out. The author of these lines has already seen the film twice and can tell you this much: He thinks it’s worth it!
