QUOTES

»As exciting as „Lord of the Rings“ (...)  Surprisingly gorgeous and intimate cinematography, a lovely narrator and a fitting score take the viewer from camp to camp during this Live-Action-Roleplay.« – N-TV

»Dramatic music and pictures in contrast to a serious view of the day to day lives of the five protagonists. The fascination of Live-Action-Roleplay is perfectly conveyed on the big screen. Forget everyday life, meet new challenges and go on an adventure. Great Fun! – HAMBURGER ABENDBLATT

»A short but informative film about hidden adventures in the woods, not far from where others watch TV, fire up the grill or exercise. Apart from the thrilling LAP narratives, this film centers around people and identity. About the roles we play in our lives. As parents, employees or pranksters. « – STUTTGARTER NACHRICHTEN

»In a postmodern World, where kin, tribe and state have become obsolete, self-made communities become the place for real experiences, the regular world is lacking. A longing that sends people looking for their „Auenland“and finding themselves. « – FAZ

»Fighting is part of it, but not the center of The Live-Action-Roleplay. Simulated, not real. Trying out new perspectives, real life can’t offer us (as easily). Like being an asshole: That farmer pushed me, I’m going to kill him!. A Vacation from yourself.« – BERLINER ZEITUNG
