"Margarete Steiff" - Comments on the EMMY-Award        >> Pictures

"It is a great honour, that Heike Makatsch and with her the film "Margarete Steiff" was nominated for best actress from hundreds of films worldwide for the highest international television prize!!

This is particularly gratifying for me as producer and for Xaver Schwarzenberger as director, since we had to overcome huge hurdles and great resistance before we could achieve this challenging project.

Heike Makatsch deserves this nomination. She prepared intensively for the role of Margarete Steiff and learned from crippled people what it is like to master life whilst being confined to a wheelchair. She is a brilliant, charismatic acting personality and in addition a wonderful person with both feet firmly on the ground.

We congratulate her and everyone who contributed to the success and this accolade of the film!"
