Manche hatten Krokodile

Manche hatten Krokodile

Deutschland 2014/2015, Dokumentarfilm

Inhalt

They got stranded years ago in Hamburg's notorious neighborhood St. Pauli, trying to escape bourgeois constrictions, looking for work and a different life: as dancers or strippers, innkeepers or bartenders, sailors or pimps – they all muddled through. Now they spend their days in their favorite local bars and reminisce about the past. They recount looking for gold and sinking ships, about everyday life in their neighborhoods, and even about crocodiles. And of course about the savings clubs where they are still members. They don’t want to be considered savers, they see themselves as a lively, mixed crowd. If they had the money, they’d spend it with all their might, without giving any thought to the future. But in the savings box on the bar wall, their money is safe, from themselves. Money to make ends meet. The bar with the savings club has given them refuge throughout the years and has become a kind of home to them all.
