Double serve the end of the year: On 22. December shows the ARD TV-Movie "We're sisters", on 25. December starts the Comedy "The Boy must be. to fresh air" in the cinemas Similarities? No, except that a certain Nico Hofmann is responsible for both films.

He is a Big name in the German film industry and on his account blockbusters such as "Ku'damm 56/59" or the historical series "Charité't go last". Since the fall of 2017, he is acting as the sole managing Director of the UFA in Potsdam, and since 2015 as a Director of the Nibelungen festival in Worms.

For "The Sandman" (1995; with Götz George), for example, or "It happened in broad daylight" (1997; with Joachim Król, Barbara Rudnik) he sat on the Director's chair. In the meantime, the reputation of Germany is ahead of him with one of the most experienced Film and television producer, see.

Born on 4 December 1959 in Heidelberg, Germany and grew up in Mannheim, Germany, is the filmmaker on this Tuesday 59. He can look back on an exceptionally long filmography. In the case of not less than a minimum of 450 films, he had already pulled strings behind the Scenes, recognised it in the summer, in an Interview with the TV station SWR1.

His specialty more dividers in the television, his main interest is historical material, especially from the time of the third Reich and the GDR. He reached, almost always a mass audience. Examples from the recent past are "Dresden - The Inferno" (2006) or "The escape" (2007), "Rommel" (2012), and "Bornholmer Strasse" (2014; about the fall of the wall). His greatest Successes include the mini-series "Deutschland 83" (2015) about a Ost-spy in the Cold war and "Our mothers, our fathers" (2013), a confrontation with the fate of five young people during the Second world war, both awarded with an Emmy, and both international bestsellers.

Hofmann's recipe for success: "time and history, not as a documentary work-up, but as a highly emotional fiction on the Basis of an extremely carefully researched facts" in moving pictures to tell, he writes in his spring-released, autobiographical reason for carrying "More attitude, please," a contribution "to the analysis of the state of our society," as he puts it. Criticism of his work or his Person, also negative, is not afraid of it. If he could trigger with his films, social debates, he has achieved his goal.

Private, little is known about the Berliner-by-choice known. He founded no family of his own and feels as a deficit. "I asked the professional about the private life. The older I get, the more critical I see it," he revealed in the summer, the Mainz-based media company, VRM.
