Zum Beispiel Josef

DDR 1973/1974 Spielfilm

Summary


Josef Neumann has always been an outsider to society, and at the age of 30, he has already lived an adventurous life when he comes to the GDR. He was raised as a foundling by nuns, made an apprenticeship as a construction worker, went to the Foreign Legion, and was a seaman and a tramp. Now, he is working at the Warnow shipyard. Brigadier Bruno has a lot of sympathy and patience with the unconventional Josef, but Josef cannot fall in line with strict orders and again and again acts against the rules. Most notorious are his jumps that he had learned in the Algerian war, where his jumps had saved his life. Thanks to Bruno′s intercession, people forgive him when Josef jumps through the closed door of a bar. But after the next jump, even Bruno gives up on Josef. Now, only Julia could support Josef. He loves her, but she is not able to leave her husband, although they are already divorced. When Josef decides to leave, Julia nevertheless arrives at his door and convinces him to stay.
