Der Sandmann

DER SANDMANN

One fine morning, Benno finds sand in his bed. While he tries to ignore this at first, he soon must realize that he himself is loosing the sand. Day after day the sand increases and soon his time literally starts running short. Finally he is left no choice but to ask Sandra for help, who runs a small coffee shop under his apartment. Although Benno hates her with a passion, he started having dreams of her every night. What could Sandra and the dreams have to do with the sand?

 «The Sandman» is a modern fairy tale. It is about the discrepancy between what every person could be and what he or she actually is. A filmmaker should to try to make the films that he or she wants to see. I like entertaining movies that that also manage to inspire a little bit. That is why I am a filmmaker, to keep trying to achieve this.
