‘Generation Beziehungsunfähig’, or German for Generation Relationship Incapable, is the film adaptation of the same-titled book which was directed by Helena Hufnagel, who also wrote the screenplay together with Hilly Martinek. Appearing in the lead roles are Frederick Lau and Luise Heyer. MAX VON TREU photographed the actor and actress for the MAX cover story.
The film is about Micha who lives the life of a true bon vivant. He’s single, dates one woman after another, only to stop contacting them as soon as things get all too serious or he becomes bored. That only works for the full-time single until he meets his female counterpart Ghost. From then on, he finds himself on the flip-side of ‘diabolic’ dating. Micha, as confident as ever, still thinks he is doing everything right when he’s flirting with Ghost. But far from it – he’s being ghosted by her this time. After all, Ghost doesn’t have the slightest crush on a romantic like Micha…
