Trivia Bye Bye Germany

The art department couldn't use any foam concrete for the sets, for it wasn't invented back in 1946. They couldn't use wood either, as it has already been fueled during the hard winter 1945. Within one scene David Bermann (Moritz Bleibtreu) and his friends destroy the red Plymouth of their opponent. The actors really crashed the car with battens, picks and iron rods - and enjoyed it a lot. Actor Tim Seyfi described it: "For us it was a children's birthday party." Bye Bye Germany is based upon the first novel by Michel Bergmann, 'The Travelling Salesmen'. Bergmann is also a co-screenwriter for the film.
