Two-Eared Chick, also produced by Schweiger’s Cologne-based company, Barefoot Films, but this time co-directed by Torsten Künstler, resumes the story of the couple, picking up two years after the end of the first instalment. Their life together, affected by their routine, is turned upside down by the reappearance of their former lovers.

Once again, the screenplay is co-written by Schweiger and Anika Decker. The film is being released by Warner.

This week’s line-up includes two documentaries. Hannes Karnick and Wolfgang Richter’s Wenn Ärzte Töten ("If Doctors Kill") looks back at the implications of the holocaust and other ethnic "cleansings" for the medical staff who were involved. The title is distributed by W-Film.

Meanwhile, Eduard Erne and Christian Schneider’s Austrian/German co-production Herrenkinder traces the lives of two former pupils of the Napola schools (set up to train the Nazi elite) and their families up to the present day, reflecting on the psychological legacy of this inhuman education. The film is distributed by Salzgeber.
