Bad Boy Kummer

Bad Boy Kummer

Schweiz / Deutschland 2009/2010, Dokumentarfilm

Inhalt

Sharon Stone, Mike Tyson, Nicholas Cage – they all gave legendary interviews to Tom Kummer. More than willing, the stars disclosed stunning, intimate details to the reporter. For four years, Kummer provided newspapers in Germany and Switzerland with his spectacular celebrity stories, which were never really fact-checked. Until the bubble eventually did burst: the interviews were made-up. The case of Kummer became one of the biggest scandals in the history of German-language media.
