Der Fürsorger

Der Fürsorger – The Welfare Worker (CH/LUX/DE 2009, fiction, 96’)
Director, Co-Scriptwriter (with Felix Benesch)

Synopsis

Welfare worker Hans-Peter Stalder possesses the secret code to happiness: a money-multiplying strategy which promises incredible wealth to its hand-picked investors – and a life of leisure and luxury.

Stalder embezzles millions and takes women’s hearts by storm. But when a stupid mistake trips him up, the mask of seemingly respectable citizenship drops to reveal a host of other personae: the unscrupulous swindler, the love-hungry ladykiller, the remorseful family man… In short, nothing is what it seems. But everything is true.

Or almost so.
