German Film Shot In Antigua Premiers Today

Scene from the movie Antigua

A film called Antigua and filmed in Antigua & Barbuda will begin showing today in Germany, Prime Minister Gaston Browne has announced.

“Antigua is hot” an excited Browne told followers on social media.

The film is entirely in German but features some of Antigua and Babuda’s picturesque sites and attractions.

A number of local actors are also featured as extras in the movie filmed in 2018.

The movie is about mystery and conflict on the high sea as the dream ship sets sail for Antigua.

The entire crew assumes that Staff Captain Grimm will be the captain of the “dream ship”. But the shipping company decided otherwise. Max Parger introduces himself as the new captain.

Not an easy start for “the new”. As soon as they run out, there is a conflict between Parger and Grimm. It will be a turbulent, emotional and sometimes dangerous first trip for Max Parger, at the end of which he deserves every respect.

Captain Parger is actually happy about his brother’s surprise visit. But he knows Moritz well enough to know that his presence, whether of his sometimes crazy ideas, could sometimes end in chaos. He therefore intends to keep an eye on Moritz.


However, Captain Parger is not the only crew member who has to overcome many obstacles on this trip. Frieder Heinemann, a well-known cruise critic, comes on board. Which in itself is not a problem for hotel director Liebhold and her crew, because they know what they can do. But Hanna Liebhold and Frieder Heinemann were once a couple, and it was Hanna who broke up with Frieder, which he can hardly forgive and makes everyone feel on board.


Sebastian Felber wants to surprise his partner, Thomas Severin, twice. He would like to propose marriage to him on board and, for surprise number two, invited Thomas’ oldest and best friend Judith Kerner, who comes on board with her 14-year-old son Tobias. The only problem is that Thomas is Tobias’ father, which Judith has kept secret to this day.

Enough material for Marlene and Heinz Kolatschek, an elderly couple who wants to celebrate their golden wedding during this trip and will soon have to find out how different the respective ideas for the celebrations of this great event are. Marlene and Heinz talk a lot about other people, but are speechless when it comes to their own feelings.


Tanja Lohmeier works as a cabin stewardess on board and indulges in her great passion – singing – also during work and to the great delight of the crew and passengers. She has had a dream for many years: once in her life she wants to present her talent on a large stage in front of an audience. The lively Tanja only realizes that this dream has come true thanks to the active support of Doctor Sander and cruise director Schifferle when she actually stands alone on the big stage of the “dream ship” at the closing gala.

Humor, love and drama make for an entertaining trip to Antigua with the new captain of the “dream ship”, Max Parger.

      Oh Holy Smoke!

      ‘Antigua is Hot.’

      Surely not hotter than ‘…Congo Pepper’ or …Hell Fire.’

      Absolutely sure that the accompanying ‘…Image’ that speaks to nothing but ‘…Abomination Unto the Lord,’ was not, and is not what the Prime Minister wish to be associated.

      Not a Prime Minister ‘…who truly believes in the family as an institution’ that involves;

      (i) …Husbands;

      (ii) …Wives; and

      (iii) …Sons and daughters.’


      Not sure this news portal (ANR) wishes to be associated with promoting ‘…Cinematographic Abomination’ (coined by me). Nah.

      Clearly, ‘…If a man kisses a man as he would a woman,’ no matter how pleasurable, woe beyond to him.

      No escape from ‘…God’s wrath.’ Nah.

      This would be consistent with ‘…a man lying with another man.’

      The Scripture declares such as ‘…an abomination’ [Leviticus 20: 13].

      • Why the don’t you take a frigging seat!
        Always quoting shit from the Bible.
        Instead of being a pessimist you should turn another eye.
        Going around judging and condemning people as if you’re good…. I hate people like you…..

        • Watch your language, please. You need to do a little Bible reading. Such hatred for “people” and calling the Bible “sh__” usually displays some deep inner turmoil. Such judging and condemning people as you display in this post might indicate some serious need for help.

  1. I see the Taylor Swift song about to come out here:

    You just need to take several seats and then try to restore the peace
    And control your urges to scream about all the people you hate
    ‘Cause shade never made anybody less gay
    So oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh

    You need to calm down, you’re being too loud
    And I’m just like oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh (oh)
    You need to just stop
    Like can you just not step on his gown?
    You need to calm down

  2. Haha! Don’t we have some kind of laws here when it comes to gay people……I’m just saying. The hypocrisy…

  3. Sounds like an interesting movie but let’s hope that “Sebastian Felber wants to surprise his partner, Thomas Severin, twice. He would like to propose marriage to him on board” will not send the wrong signals to the audience indicating that Antigua & Barbuda accommodates same sex marriage….

  4. I can see where This is where Taylor Swifts song comes in:

    You just need to take several seats and then try to restore the peace
    And control your urges to scream about all the people you hate
    ‘Cause shade never made anybody less gay

    So oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh
    You need to calm down, you’re being too loud
    And I’m just like oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh (oh)
    You need to just stop
    Like can you just not step on his gown?
    You need to calm down

  5. The Bible also say that if you have sex outside of marriage or commit adultery the same fire go bun you too so it’s not Gays only.

  6. Is that two men kissing????

    That film should make Antiguans Proud?

    Why market us as a hub to promote gay rights?

    And we charged them how much?

    What example are we sending our youths?


    • Too late, our schools are filled with gays especially among our teenagers and it will continue to grow. I am against this type of life styles but society has changed a lot.

    • And some of these same youths are doing the same thing for money and alot of their parents don’t know about it. One your eyes

  7. Well done, Antigua! Fantastic advertising among all sectors. Antiguans need to grow up and stop being so bloody homophobic and small minded. Such a film will result in more tourists visiting our island, both gay and straight and all those in between.
    It’s about time that the government changes the anti-gay laws and enter Antigua into the 21st century. The government also needs to change the constitution to include the protection of gay, bi and trans people so that discrimination and violence against such people will be reduced significantly.
    Wake up and grow up, Antigua!

    • No one cares about watching this film! only the ones involved. secondly why does homosexuality have to be promoted to advertise our dear island? Not necessary and not what we’re about. This movie looks like a bunch of white gays flaunting their money. This movie already looks like it lacks flavour in terms of island culture which means they could’ve done this movie anywhere and name it anything. Why would they want to name it Antigua? Name it Germany and promote your homosexuality there. We’re not interest and we don’t care that you want to be gay/ are gay but this audience prefer you to keep it to yourself! I pray that these stupid law will never be passed in Antigua ever…I guarantee it being overturns by endless petitions but at the end of the day fire Wasn’t even meant to cook or stay warm it was meant to burn Sodomites (parasites)

      • In which universe are you living? Lesbians / gays / bi-sexuals live among us here in Antigua, so please, wake up to this REALITY. No one deserves to be discriminated against for expressing love. Point fingers are murderers, rapists, child molestors and adulterers (yes, the straight kind who break their sacred oath as witnessed before God and man). and not people who only are looking for the love that makes them happiest. Please, grow up.

        • @thinkin
          ‘grow up’ is exactly what the pedophile says to the twelve year old before taking his/her innocence
          Soon in search of love and happiness, we will be able to engage in carnal acts with all ages and all creatures. We will just change the laws.

  8. These people have the heart to name it Antigua the worst representation of our island. We don’t condone the bull shyt. “Man to Man is so unjust” smh these say if it ain’t pushing being gay it ain’t norm…fags

  9. Nobody is born a bigot. It is a learned behaviour. Hating someone because of their sexuality is like hating someone because of a pigment in their skin. Open your minds people. Gays and lesbians did not choose their sexuality just like you didn’t choose your race. It’s time for Antigua and Barbuda to move into the 21st century. It’s almost 2020.

  10. Next up, movie about beastiality and the Prime Minister of Antigua/Barbuda Hon.Gaston Browne also endorses it because it promotes the island for tourism purposes.

    “Lord, in your wrath remember Mercy.”

    The plagues are taking over our island slowly yet no matter how much the ones doing the right are pushing for righteousness, those in authority from the head ridicule them saying they just want to be in politics when majority of the time that is not so.

    Yes we have our sin on this and that which God forgives but when we uphold things that are an abomination to Him, He nah smile wid that so we shouldn’t. Nobody here is saying Gays to be stoned what we are saying is per the Bible in the New testament to be exact “God loves the sinner but hates the sin.”

    • What has beastiality have to do with homosexuality? Please educate yourself on the differences because I can guarantee you that the people who perform beastiality in our “righteous exalted nation” are “straight”.

  11. Antigua gaarn, I moving to Barbuda
    I wonder why this movie isnt showing at caribbean cinemas as well
    Lights Camera Action, let the drama begin
    Regarding the choice to be gay or not, the hearts of men are just wicked. Even if the world is doing it, it aint right.
    Men curb your urges, or we will invent a superbug to give you ED!!!

  12. Read this article:Of Dis and Dat: The anti-man wedding by Selvyn A Walter published in Antigua Observer Newspaper, October 7, 2010.
    Have a happy, healthy, safe, thoughtful, tolerant and prosperous New Decade!!!!!

  13. Being a trailblazer is never easy, and for Gene Robinson, becoming the first openly gay bishop in the Episcopal Church brought harsh denunciations, harassment, even death threats.

    But Robinson, looking back as he prepares to retire at the end of the year, says he was never deterred from his groundbreaking path. “There has never been a time when I didn’t feel this was worth it,” he says. “When you are pursuing God’s dream for a just society, that is worth dying for … it’s a noble thing to pursue.” And he takes great satisfaction from the progress his church and society as a whole have made on LGBT issues since he was elected bishop of New Hampshire in 2003.

    From the article: Of Dis and Dat: It should be known that Bishop Gene Robinson who was consecrated as the first openly gay bishop in the United States used to be a (married priest )in the Antigua Diocese stationed in Saba. After his divorce, the bishop told him that his new lifestyle was neither approved nor sanctioned by this Anglican Diocese in Antigua

    When the world is raving about gay rights, and gay firsts, I want everyone to remember that in spite of legislation and sanctions, two black Antiguans defied the police and the law in 1958 and led the way in carrying out the first anti-man marriage that I have known of right here in Antigua, with Caspar the groom claiming that his bride was possibly suffering from morning sickness shortly thereafter.
