Munich, December 16th, 2019
The final take on the set of Boandlkramer’s Eternal Love (orig. Der Boandlkramer und die ewige Liebe) was completed just in time for the Christmas holidays. Now the Grim Reaper, aka “Boandlkramer” will no longer cause any chaos in heaven and the angels can return to their Christmas preparations in peace.
Director Joseph Vilsmaier and his team, with leading actors Michael Bully Herbig and Hape Kerkeling have been filming on various locations in Bavaria and Austria since October 3rd 2019, and have earned a peaceful Christmas break, too.
Well, this is certainly a first for “Boandlkramer”, aka the Grim Reaper (Michael Bully Herbig): Cupid’s arrow has hit him hard! When he sets eye on Maxl’s mother, Gefi (Hannah Herzsprung), it is love at first sight. Who would have ever thought it: Death himself has fallen head over heels in love! A besotted Boandlkramer then accepts a seemingly clever deal with the Devil (Hape Kerkeling) which threatens to mess up the Divine Plan. Absolute chaos seems inevitable…
This calls for some cherry moonshine!
About the production:
Eleven years ago, Michael Bully Herbig conquered movie screens as “Boandlkramer”, aka the Grim Reaper in The Story of Brandner Kaspar (orig. Die Geschichte vom Brandner Kasper, 2008) and it was Herbig, who birthed the idea for the sequel, Boandlkramer’s Eternal Love (orig. Der Boandlkramer und die ewige Liebe). In this feature, Herbig stars once again as Death himself alongside acclaimed German comedian and crowd pleaser, Hape Kerkeling, who plays the role of the Devil.
Joseph Vilsmaier (The Harmonists, orig. Comedian Harmonists, 1997; Autumn Milk, orig. Herbstmilch1989) is directing once again. Marcus H. Rosenmüller (Grave Decisions, orig. Wer früher stirbt ist länger tot, 2006) and Ulrich Limmer (writer/producer of the popular German Sams-movies) co-wrote the screenplay with Michael Bully Herbig.
Boandlkramer’s Eternal Love (orig. Der Boandlkramer und die ewige Liebe) is a Perathon Medien production in co-production with herbX film and LEONINE. The project is financed by FilmFernsehFonds Bayern.
