Two to One

41st Film Festival Munich 2024 opens with the world premiere of Two to One written and directed by Natja Brunckhorst. The film that is inspired by a true story tells the story of three friends – played by Sandra Hüller, Max Riemelt und Ronald Zehrfeld – who find millions of Ostmark and a clever way to convert them into western money. Their unexpected wealth tests their friendship, their solidarity and their faith in capitalism. Two to One was produced by Zischlermann and Row Film, X-Verleih is distributing in Germany.
