The German film director, Andreas Veiel, made a name of himself with the 2005 theatrical montage Der Kick about hate crimes. In Das Himbeerreich he focuses on the banking world. Based on interviews with more than 20 leading financiers he tries to unravel the threads between the personal motives and the business structures in this world. It’s a montage of the banker’s way to think and speak, their brutal intelligence, their lecherousness after billion Euro affairs as well as their remorse of being a possible part of a financial crisis themselves. The text is constructed from monologue parts and is a challenge for both actors as well as audience.
