About the movie:

November 9: Ich und Kaminski, 2015, Comedy/Drama, 2h 4m. Based on Daniel Kehlmann's novel (2003), Ich und Kaminsiki.
Sebastian Zöllner, a cocky young writer, hopes to make his reputation and fortune by publishing a
biography of one of the greatest 20th-century painters, now blind and living in total seclusion. So
he travels to the Swiss Alps to interview Manuel Kaminski, who knew everybody in the art world. Zöllner's idea is to have a biography ready the moment Kaminski is dead.
