Summary

The Legend of Timm Thaler or The Boy Who Sold His Laughter

After directing films as diverse as "Halbe Treppe" ("Grill Point") and "Sommer vorm Balkon" ("Summer in Berlin"), Andreas Dresen is now making his first foray into family entertainment with a big screen adaptation of James Krüss's 1962 novel which has been the director's favorite book since his childhood days. 12-year-old Berliner Arved Friese has been cast in the title role as "Timm Thaler" who trades his enchanting laughter to the mysterious Baron Lefuet (played by actor-director Justus von Dohnányi) in exchange for the ability to win any bet he makes. However, Timm soon realizes that a person is not complete without laughter, but Lefuet is not that easy to outwit when he tries to regain this gift of laughter...
