"Frank Meyer is a film that couldn't be more topical in its subject matter and form. It's s a film that belongs on the big screen and impressively proves that cinema documentaries from Germany can be fresh and lively."
- Internationale Hofer Filmtage 2023
"The documentary FRANK MEYER leads the viewer into the trap of their own prejudices and manages to touch the viewer. Everything that is unnecessary has been left out. Amazingly, after more than 10 years of material collection, the creators have been bent on such minimalistic solutions."
