Roman has just taken up a position as a draftsman at an architect’s office
in Cologne and is about to experience his first savage Shrove Tuesday carnival.
Although reserved, he decides to go to the party thrown by his colleagues. After
a few beers, he begins to loosen up and even starts flirting with an attractive
woman on the dance floor. But when he steps out for a breath of fresh air, his
carnival ends in a tragedy. Roman is involved in a quarrel between an underage
pickpocket and his two victims. He helps the men catch the thief, only to end
up witnessing in awe the angry men brutally beat up the kid.
Born in Freising in 1969, he first worked as 2nd Cameraman and Assistant DP.
He studied at the Academy of Media in Cologne and in 1996 received a grant for
the Film School of San Antonio de las Baños in Cuba. He has been a freelance
director and writer since 1999 and is the co-founder of a web television company
named Datenstrudel. After shooting several short films, Narren marked his debut
as a feature film director.
