Born in Bern, Switzerland in 1993, Max Humbacher started acting for children's theater at the age of seven, playing in theater productions at Schauspielhaus Zürich, the state theater in Zurich amongst many others.  Max's first feature role was in Mike Schaerer's BOLD HEROES (STATIONSPIRATEN), then going on to star in Markus Imboden's THE FOSTER BOY (DER VERDINGBUB), Billie August's NIGHT TRAIN TO LISBON, Micha Lewinsky's A DECENT MAN (NICHTS PASSIERT) and Karim Patwa's DRIFT (DRIFTEN).  Max went on to receive the Swiss Film Prize (2012), EFP Shooting Star (2012) and the Swiss Film Prize for Best Actor (2018) for his acting merits.

 

Next Max will be seen in Robert Schwentke's THE CAPTAIN, which opens theatrically July 27th.  After an illustrious career in Hollywood, Robert Schwentke's (RED, FLIGHTPLAN) German homecoming film THE CAPTAIN, is simultaneously a historical docudrama, a tar-black comedy, and a sociological treatise, presenting fascism as a pathetic pyramid scheme, a system to be gamed by the most unscrupulous and hollow-souled.  Based on a disturbing true story, Max Hubacher plays Willi Herold, a German army deserter who stumbles across an abandoned Nazi captain’s uniform during the last, desperate weeks of the Third Reich. Newly emboldened by the allure of a suit that he stole only to stay warm, Willi discovers that many Germans will follow the leader, whosoever that happens to be. A parade of fresh atrocities follow in the self-declared captain’s wake, and serve as a profound reminder of the consequences of social conformity and untrammeled political power.  The Hollywood Reporter's Todd McCarthy has hailed the film as "darkly evocative...relentless...arresting", while Tina Hassannia over at RogerEbert.com called it "a film that fully understands the psychology of the German soldiers and offers unflinching, timeless truth".

 

Afterwards, Max can be seen in Marcel Gisler's MARIO which opens in the US later this year. The film tells the story of two young male soccer players who get caught up between the politics of the game and the politics of love, falling for each other.
