MAGICAL MYSTERY OR: THE RETURN OF KARL SCHMIDT
MAGICAL MYSTERY ODER DIE RÜCKKEHR DES KARL SCHMIDT
2017, DCM Film Distribution, 111 min, Germany, Dir: Arne Feldhusen

It’s as if the glory days of the 1990s never ended in this techno-fueled rave across the German countryside. Based on the novel by best-selling German author Sven Regener, MAGICAL MYSTERY follows recovering alcoholic Karl Schmidt (a brilliant Charly Hübner), who finds himself reunited with his old friends, who have now become successful DJs. Quickly enlisted as designated driver for their upcoming tour, Karl must keep the party-happy musicians in line while adapting to the world outside of rehab. For the next several months, he must resist the alluring temptation of partying, drugs and, of course, music! Arne Feldhusen directs this hysterical and charming road trip through Germany’s mid-1990s club scene, co-starring Detlev Buck, Annika Meier and Marc Hosemann.


In German with English subtitles. | Special Ticket Prices: $15 General, $13 Cinematheque Members. No vouchers. | Screening format: DCP
