Films with Gesine Cukrowski: The best of the German actress

As a series actress, Gesine Cukrowski became known to a wide audience. But the actress also has a few notable films in her vita.

As the daughter of a qualified engineer and a nurse, Gesine Cukrowski does not seem to have inherited her acting talent from her parents at first glance. But since her mother also worked as a freelance artist, her penchant for films seems to have something to do with her parents’ home. After studying German and theater studies, Cukrowski first devoted herself to religious studies and psychology before studying acting. Born in Berlin, she gained greater fame in TV series such as “Und bye!” and “The Last Witness”. In addition to her stage engagements and series appearances, Gesine Cukrowski has also made a few interesting films, of which we would like to present the best to you here.
