The Legend of Timm Thaler or The Boy Who Sold His Laughter 2017
Timm Thaler oder das verkaufte Lachen (original title)
1h 42min | Adventure, Comedy, Drama | 2 February 2017 (Germany)
The young Timm Thaler lives in the 1920s with his father in a small alley of a German city. Even when he grows up in poor circumstances, he is happy, and he has a laugh that nobody can resist. This is so contagious and disarming that Baron Lefuet, the fierce Baron, wants to have it.
The simple facts about the movie are known now.
But the main plot does handle around the trading(and exclusion of people) and its results for the world and the character of humans… so secondary narcissism and a bit greed.
The absence of conscience is a problem for the intention of the film and book, so it is simply a problem for the film and its comprehensibility…
