Anke Engelke about the project: "I"m really looking forward to DAS LETZTE WORT and the joint work and journey with Netflix, Pantaleon, the great director Aron Lehmann, the great book and the wonderful colleagues. Here, as in real life, drama and humour constantly collide. Family and relationships, loss and grief, life and death, the absurdities of life, the recovery of strength and courage, everything in it. Beautiful to howl."
