Subject füor Film stories
The word film material is used in German referring to typical plots of a film. These are often love stories (e.g. the main character is hopelessly in love with an unattainable person), Fish out of Water or Comedy of Errors (i.e. the main character does not know that they have a twin), or other classic film stories. Historical events, such as wars or decisive battles can serve as a film topic that serves as a starting point for the personal drama of the main character, for example.
