Schrankmensch (Cupboard Man) is a short film based on a 70’s short story by British author Ian McEwan. It was shot in Germany in 2008 by a crew of non-professional young film enthusiasts in Berlin and its suburbs. The whole team was moved by the story of a young man, a 17-year-old baby, escaping from his unbearable situation at home in order to find a better future. Cupboard Man is the first short film of director Hannes Rössler. Reediting and subtitles were done in 2013.
"I never saw my father. I think problems started right there. It was my mother who brought me up and no one else. She was twisted up, you know. That’s where I got it from. All she wanted was to have children but she wouldn’t think of getting married again so that left only me. I had to be all the children she had ever wanted."
