Climate of fear at Til Schweiger?: The result of the report is clear

Did the employees on the set of the Til Schweiger comedy “Manta, Manta - Second Part” really have to work in a climate of fear? The actor and director were accused of abusing power and alcohol on the film set in a “Spiegel” report in May. The results of an external report from the law firm SKW Schwarz Rechtsanwälte have now been determined in this regard. According to consistent media reports, the responsible film studio Constantin Film has now announced this.

A total of 50 of the 108 people involved in the film shoot were interviewed, including Schweiger himself. The perception of the working atmosphere varies greatly. The majority would have rated the mood as “very good” to “o.k.” stated that at the same time a "not insignificant number" also described it as "rather moderate" to "very poor".

In some cases, people either felt fear themselves or observed this feeling in others, and Schweiger's choice of words was sometimes perceived as "borderline, invasive and hurtful". But here too there are other voices that described Schweiger as “appreciative” and “generous”.

Many of the people interviewed said that Schweiger consumed alcohol during filming. There was also a “physical altercation” because of this. The producers also repeatedly had to intervene in cases of “behavioral behavior [from Schweiger, editor’s note] that was too disapproving.”

The Constantin board chairman Martin Moszkowicz (65) asserts that they have “dealt intensively with the allegations and incidents” and that no “production in Germany has ever been scrutinized so intensively”. Schweiger himself, as Bild writes, is “infinitely sorry” for everything and he “apologized” during the questioning.
