Filmmaker Jens Meurer takes us to the SEASIDE SPECIAL ("Honorable Mention" GRANIT – Hof Documentary Award at the 55th Hof International Film Festival) in the British North Sea resort of Cromer starting Thursday, 19 January 19 2023 with his documentary. Distributor: farbfilm
The film is an affectionate "reckoning" with Great Britain: Jens Meurer spent a year observing the traditional variety show on a North Sea pier in the remote English seaside resort of Cromer. The film shows a town out of time, full of quintessentially British types, but actually offers a highly topical view: It's about attitude, craftsmanship and authenticity. About community and values, about the humor of our British neighbors, their originality and their quirks, which we as Europeans will sorely miss.
"A real 'crowd pleaser' with a touch of wistfulness is this affectionate look at Britain's last end-of-the-pier Variety Show." (Margaret Köhler - Sax Film) and at the same time a love letter to Brexit Britain. Can it be done? Absolutely and only in the cinema. First impressions on TITEL, THESEN, TEMPERAMENTE.
