The Book

The film photographer Uwe Fleischer wrote down a variety of insights and anecdotes regarding the creation of the DEFA film "FÜR DIE LIEBE NOCH ZU MAGER?" in the book "Wo Liebe hinfällt" (lit. "Where Love Falls") and supplemented them with his own experiences. From the perspective of the camera assistant at the time, he reports on the production of the film and not only describes his work, but also conducts conversations with the main actors Simone von Zglinicki and Christian Steyer, as well as with the director Bernhard Stephan and other employees.
