Comments about the movie

“‘Heiko’s World’ is an affectionate, wonderful millieu study with plenty of Berlin snark. This dart hits the heart.” (Bayerischer Rundfunk)

“A delightful experience. One is completely enveloped by this film.” (Kino Zeit)

“A comedy staged with cheek and charm, reflecting the real Berlin. The protagonists seem authentic, Berlin’s typical corner pubs cosy and quaint” (B.Z.)

“[Heiko] is a charismatic identification figure, and the film shows in gently overwrought social realism a world that hasn’t changed much in the last 50 years, and in which people still believe in the victory of good and in love.” (Indie Cinema)

“A drama with a Berlin snout and a lot of heart. Wonderful!” (3sat)

“‘Heiko’s World’ is an unusual film in many respects and lead actor Martin Rohde is the primus inter pares of a wonderful ensemble.” (Jury Filmfest München)

“Authentic, heart-warming cinematic experience” (rbb television).

“Not a film, but an experience!” (arteschock)

“A gem in the German cinema mishmash, remarkably self-confidently staged with heart and soul” (Filmdienst)

“‘Heiko’s World’: from Weddinger pub unique to cult cinema star!” (tag 24)
