Jewish film director Levy plans Hitler comedy

9 December 2005

DUESSELDORF - Dani Levy, the Jewish film director who shocked German sensibilities with a comedy about a Jewish family feud, is planning a send-up movie about Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler next, he told Deutsche Presse-Agentur on Friday.

The Swiss-born director's award-winning 2004 comedy, "Alles auf Zucker", breached an unwritten rule in the German movie and television industry against poking fun at Jewish characters and introduced millions of Germans to Jewish humour.

Levy, 48, speaking from the western city of Duesseldorf, said that he would start shooting his next movie, "My Fuehrer", in January with a star-studded cast.

The comedy would be serve as a counterpoint
to recent German documentary-style movies about the Nazis. "Those films tended too much to put the characters on a pedestal," he said.
