An unfortunate truth of human nature is that we’re all capable of cruelty and violence. It’s perhaps a part of our origins as animals, but it can manifest in shocking ways, and writer/director Katrin Gebbe explores those limits in “Nothing Bad Can Happen.”
Based on a true story and winner of the German Film Critics Association Award for Best Feature Film Debut and Best Actor, the film follows young Christian punk Tore, who falls into living with a dysfunctional family, where the man of the house instigates a series of games and tests determined to test the young’s man beliefs. It’s an increasingly hostile world for the fragile Tore, who curiously still needs the family’s love. In this exclusive featurette, lead actor Julius Feldmeier discusses some of the themes that run through the movie.
