Pünktchen und Anton

04 June 2017 – 21 June 2017
(Show more dates)

Night after night, Pünktchen sneaks out of her room to sell matches in the city – even though her parents are filthy rich and fulfill her every wish, but never have any time for their daughter. They are just part-time parents. In contrast, Anton goes begging at night, because he doesn’t know where he is going to find the money for his very sick mother. Although both live in families that couldn’t be more different, they go through thick and thin together. When thieves try to break into Pünktchen’s parents’ home, Anton is right there to help, brave and motivated!

During the world economic crisis in 1931, Erich Kästner wrote one of the first realistic urban novels for children: Pünktchen und Anton. Two brave children dive headlong into big city adventures. Kästner’s children’s classic has not lost any of it relevance. It tells a tale of neglect in prosperity and precarious living conditions, of the chasm between the poor and rich, but above all of the power of a friendship that simply ignores all boundaries between the classes.
