Schtonk!

Deutschland 1991/1992 Spielfilm

Summary

Even as a boy in bombed-out Berlin, Fritz Knobel discovered how easy it is to do business with greenhorns: he fobs off the GI’s with Hitler memorabilia which he probably manufactured himself. Little Fritz progresses into being the art and antique dealer Professor Dr. Knobel who makes his pile by selling fakes of all kinds. On the occasion of the Fuehrer’s anniversary, he presents his life’s achievement: the Hitler diaries. A reporter for “HH Press”, Hermann Willié, is present at the celebrations. Fate takes its course, and Willié who has a hunch this might turn into a world-wide scoop, gets the money flowing at his publishers. When the Hitler diaries are presented to an astounded public, Willié is convinced he has reached the apex of his career. But not for long...
