The COURAGE to be brave
Producer Danny Krausz on CHUCKS
I already got to know the creative originality of the director duo Hiebler-Ertl in their first feature film “nogo,” which I produced in 2000.
Their screenplay for CHUCKS impressed me deeply, and I had a vision that it would make a very good film.
In CHUCKS people face their destinies; there is no complaining. I find that fantastic. I rarely see such figures in our films. They give people –...

ADOLESCENCE as A GLITCH
What fascinated you about the book CHUCKS?
When we first read CHUCKS by Cornelia Travnicek, we were amazed at how many parallels this novel had with our film “Coming of Age”. CHUCKS, too, is about love and death – a thematic combination we simply cannot turn down – and about the overwhelming emotions involved.
Both are love dramas in which the characters grow to meet the challenges they are faced with: The female protagonist breaks...
