"As we asked Sibylle Berg whether we could make a documentary about her, she decidedly said: 'Maybe.'" That is the both charming and ironic statement by filmmakers Sigrun Köhler and Wiltrud Baier – professionally better known by their beautiful nom de guerre "Böller und Brot" (read: firecrackers and bread) - when describing the beginning of their daring project. For "Wer hat Angst vor Sibylle Berg?", Köhler and Baier spent two years following the outspoken author and columnist, who never avoids a painful confrontation in her writings, yet aside from her polarizing public persona keeps a discreet, almost shy distance. Thus even more privileged are the surprising moments in this thoroughly entertaining film that have Sibylle Berg letting down her guard and opening up new perspectives on her life and work. With stopovers in Zurich, Stuttgart and Los Angeles, a fascinating, unexpectedly touching and wholly unconventional portrait of the artist starts to emerge. One might not need to be afraid of Sibylle Berg, yet one certainly should show her the goddamn respect she well deserves.
