Ella Rumpf plays an ensemble lead for Detlev Buck’s new feature film »ASPHALTGORILLAS«
Atris (Samuel Schneider) is tired of being the minion of underground boss El Keitar (Kida Khodr Ramadan). Seeking a new life, Atris tries, together with his friend Frank (Jannis Niewöhner), to pull through a venturous plan of counterfeiting money. But none of them are able to cope with the situation: gangsters, drugs, guns and cars are taking over and circumstances get out of control. At least there’s fearless thief Marie (Ella Rumpf) who stands by them with her ruthlessness.
After directing four „Bibi & Tina“-movies, »ASPHALTGORILLAS« shows Detlev Buck’s dedication to a severe field study. The screenplay has been written together with Cüneyt Kaya and Constantin Lieb and is based on the short story of author Ferdinand von Schirach.
