film profile] high-school comedy trilogy, will soon be presenting audiences with his latest giggle-inducing effort, Das perfekte Geheimnis (lit. "The Perfect Secret"), shot this spring and set to go on general release in Germany on 31 October this year, courtesy of Constantin Film Verleih.
The script of Das perfekte Geheimnis, written by the director himself and based on the concept behind the hit Italian movie Perfect Strangers [+see also:
film profile], revolves around three women, four men, seven telephones and how blurry the truth can get, even when it comes to our nearest and dearest. Taking this as the premise, a star-studded cast – including many of Dagtekin's regulars, such as Elyas M’Barek, for starters, but also Jella Haase, Karoline Herfurth and Frederick Lau, who are joined by actor-director Florian David Fitz, Wotan Wilke Möhring and Jessica Schwarz – play a tight-knit group of friends who are enjoying a dinner party, until they decide to play a dangerous game...
Their “game of truth” consists of agreeing to place their phones on the table and unveil anything they contain at the others' request: recorded messages, texts, incoming calls – anything. What begins as a harmless game will end in complete chaos, with many surprises, twists and revelations coming thick and fast.
Das perfekte Geheimnis is being produced by Lena Schoemann for Constantin Film Produktion. It was supported financially by the German Federal Film Board-FFA and the Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg, but first and foremost by the FFF Bayern.
