Press quotes

“‘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)

“[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 there is still a belief in the victory of good and in love.” (Indie Cinema)

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

“Authentic, heartwarming cinematic experience.” (rbb television)

“The performance is like a concert: the fans cheer for Heiko, cheer for his hits and boo his opponents. At the end there are “Heiko” chants and standing ovations. […] The film is a touching homage to the quirky characters at the bar and to a Wedding that should remain as it is.” (TAZ)

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

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

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

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