Max und die Wilde 7 ‒ Die Geister-Oma

Winfried Oelsner

This year’s LICHTER Film Festival has the motto Future. And of course who can’t be missed? The future of cinema! Our very young guests! We are pleased to invite you to the world premiere of the second adventure of Max und die Wilde 7. Uschi Glas and the rest of the cast provide 94 minutes of humour and excitement, mixed with a good pinch of horror. And the best thing: as befits a real premiere, the cast will be there - red carpet and all.

Max’s mother receives a new job as a nurse, which means moving to the Geroldseck retirement home: a real castle with towers, an armoury and dusty knight’s armors. In the old actress Vera, the former football coach Horst and the famous professor Kilian, Max finds a colourful group of friends who share his passion for intricate puzzles and tricky cases. Everything could be well … but scary things soon start happening at the castle. And then there’s the football match during which Max would really like to have revenge on his nasty classmate Ole. For Max and his friends, it’s time to show great courage and real team spirit.
