Synopsis

he official entry from Germany for the international category at the Oscars has started as a competition entry at this year’s Berlinale, taking the audience by storm with untamed energy on screen.

9-year-old Benni is a furious creature, driving everyone around her to despair. Wherever Benni ends up, she is immediately expelled. Child protection has an official name for kids like her: System Crasher. She wants to be home with her mum, but even her mother is scared of her. Can anger management trainer Micha find a way to tame her?

Christoph Gröner

“Suffused with sympathy but also a dose of bitter realism and shot with a freewheeling energy, “System Crasher” is an admi- rable distillation of a tough subject.” (Lee Marshall, Screen)
