Iris Berben in the ZDF: The Diva has not played long

This woman has a secret, which is none. Finally, she told it all, even if no one believes in. It originates from the third planet in the system Alpha Centauri. Came to warn the earthlings from Invasion. The content, stupid and lustful, so, the transcendentally Beautiful suit monkeys. Who is hovering in 1971, located in the then wild Munich in the German Film and television world, it had to be easy for the Superstar to come to the sort of suborbital the stars. It was the greatest gift that Iris Berben us could not Grounders make: to disappear suddenly again like that Astro girl from Rudolf Thomes delicious nonsense film "Supergirl. The girl of the stars“, but to remain, for five decades already, and to be always better.

Iris is the last true Diva from the Golden (and, Yes, sexist) German Bildschirmära, in the naivety and self-confidence of a youthful Exuberance to each other plucked is Berben, alongside Senta Berger – led force against all odds to film a huge. The Berben is in two days seventy years of age, is not irrelevant, because it is aging on Alpha Centauri. However, the ZDF wanted to, where the Divine from the "heritage of the Guldenburgs" has held up to the "Secretary" over the decades, so gorgeous yard, your birthday give something Special to, and since it was on a Stalker.

You can't be surprised now enough about that to get in "Not dead" finally (halfway) works, what it is in the United Kingdom ever since the Foundation of the television entertainment: casual, game, joyful, self-irony, which juggles with the clichés, and despite all the nostalgia, even room for a true and wise moments can be. To masterpiece it's not enough: even the title seems intentionally flip; the scenes without any Iris Berben fall significantly, and at the Finale – the protagonist wants to try a Comeback as a singer – is at it again, this audience ecstasy to fremdschämen: To see and snap in just extras.

Atmospheric but the "Sunday Morning"Version of the protagonist of the Indie Band Gurr sings together with the music the Nico Part is. The coquette succeeded Smoothing with Iris Berbens life and career. Many of the biographical pieces are recognizable, but the gall is. So the heroine, the ageing diva Simone Mankus, a son (Barnaby Metschurat), who has as the son of the actress (Oliver Berben produced the Film) has in the Director and production specialist tried. The Film Filius, however, is a Loser, never made it out of the shadow of the mother.

It was certainly clear that for this jubilarian no blowout detective story and not a Biopic was out of the question, it had to be overtightened. So there was a nice, naive, half-parable about the artist's life, the front of the Munich Bohème-years bows: "the Bodyguard" meets "Sunset Boulevard" meets "Harold and Maude" meets "The thing, sweetheart", and the Whole to a coarse-poetic, even before the film allusions bursting novel ("A slap in the face") by Franz Dobler, of something like the armed (criminal)Arm of the Bavarian subculture. Gently, the template has been reworked with Dobler and Berben fellow Director Nina Grosse himself.

With a pleasant mix of obduracy, simmering anger and a growing admiration Murathan Muslu plays the attractive bodyguards Robert Fallner. This anti-hero, a tragic fatal shot from the police service, retired to his semi-ex-girlfriend is nachtrauernd and, of course, the Amateur psycho-versed in logical ("because you are a sucker for the limelight"), a deliberately stereotypical figure.
