Vera’s Tongue in my Mouth Full of Chocolate
Director: Helmut Mario Fulss
Runtime: 13 mins
12 years after the fall of the Berlin Wall. The embittered socialist Robert Lekroucha (62) lives with his son Wladimir (13) in the East German province. After an unexpected inheritance, he responds to a job announcement from a young woman and offers her work as a maid in his home. But when Irma Freimars appears, things aren’t the way they should be. Irma comes from the much-hated West, she’s not young at all, she wears a cross around her neck, and she drinks sour Riesling wine! However, in a socialistic reflex, he hires her nonetheless. But soon, her French food and her religious nature start to get on Robert’s nerves. And on his son’s, too, who much prefers to read through his father’s old diaries, fully concentrating on reliving his first erotic experiences.
Hellmut Mario Fulss was born in Santiago, Chile, and moved with his family to Germany, when he was eight years old. He studied theatre in the JLU-University of Giessen, where he completed his Master’s on the works of Robert Wilson.
Hellmut’s film career began as a 1stAD working in German cinema and television, including the Oscar-nominated SOPHIE SCHOLL – THE FINAL DAYS in 2005, and the German submission for the 2015 Academy Award’s, LABYRINTH OF LIES. He is also the co-Author of several feature-films and is planning a long feature-Film about the changes in East-Germany after the fall of the Berlin-Wall and reunification.
