If you’re anything like me, you’ve spent the better part of the last few years wondering when German movie makers would produce a crossdressing film. Well, the time has now come.
Rubbeldiekatz, which apparently means very fast, releases December 15th in cinemas around Germany and stars Matthias Schweighofer, Max Giermann, Joachim Meyerhoff and Detlev Buck.
Using Google translate, I was able to find this from the plot summary:
From 15 December at the cinema -http://www.facebook.com/rubbeldiekatz.film
A job is a job, says the unsuccessful stage actor Alexander (Matthias Schweighofer), turns into ”Alexandra”, beating all rivals from the field andactually get hold of a woman’s role in a major Hollywood movie!
But he can convince in high heels and stuffed bra on time? More than he bargained for! His colleague (MAX YAW MAN) begins his begrabschen, even the brilliant director (Joachim Meyerhoff) finds him irresistible, Alex’s ex-girlfriend (SUZANNE BORMANN) freaks out and his gruffbrothers (Detlev Buck, Maximilian Brückner) and their-ass buddy (DENISMoschitto mix) on the film set. Alex would like to hang his false hair to the nail, if it were not already too late - he has fallen madly in love with his partner: Superstar Sarah Voss (ALEXANDRA MARIA LARA). Alex iswoman enough to stand his ground?
IMDB’s simple description: An actor’s career takes a “Tootsie”-like turn when he’s mistakenly cast as a woman in a movie.
Looks like a fun movie, too bad I don’t understand much German. I wonder if we will get a chance to see subtitled English version. I doubt it, but at least Matthias Schweighofer is a convincing female.
