Der kleine Kuno

Der kleine Kuno

DDR 1958/1959, Spielfilm

Inhalt

What do grown-ups actually do at night? Little Kuno has been asking himself this question a lot lately. One day, the curious six-year-old decides to get the bottom of it and sneaks outside his house at night. He wanders around the streets aimlessly and experiences some very exciting things: He witnesses an operation of the fire brigade, surreptitiously watches the NVA practice for a parade on the occasion of the oncoming Republic Day, he meets a colored singer, and he runs into a member of the People′s police who takes him to the newspaper printing press where the boy′s father works. The odyssey, however, is not finished. Kuno is allowed to visit a locomotive plant along with a journalist, and eventually his mother, a train conductor, takes him home in a streetcar. After Kuno has received a broad impression of what grown-ups are up to while he is asleep, he feels satisfied and decides to not bother his parents anymore.
