The Sandman

In this modern fairy tale we get to see Sandman in a way we’ve
never seen him before. In the form of an arrogant perfectionist
named Benno, who according to himself has a pretty nice life.
The only thing that seems to stand in the way is his neighbour,
Sandra. She plays loud, passionate tango. He plays classical
music. They threaten each other and fight using chairs and
mops. After a night filled with strange dreams about Sandra,
Benno wakes up in a bed filled with sand. Sand that seems to
stream from his body, and that also appears to have the ability
to put people to sleep. After realizing that neither his psychologist
nor doctor can help him out, he is forced to turn to his
nemesis, Sandra, for help.
Will these stubborn foes be able to solve the mystery before
Benno’s sand runs out? Set to fantastic tango and a Danny
Elfmanesque soundtrack, Der Sandmann gives us a wonderful
love story with *oomph *.
