BEHIND THE WORLD
A film by Oliver Schwabe

At the age of nine, twins Bill and Tom Kaulitz from Magdeburg decided to become famous. At the age of twelve, they form a band together with Gustav Schäfer and Georg Listing, who will take over the world as of 2005 under the name Tokio Hotel. They are amazed, ridiculed, hated and revered ….

The success is gigantic: Platinum in 68 countries, sold out concerts and Bill becomes a style icon.

Rich and famous in their early 20s, the twins fly to Los Angeles by private jet, leaving behind thousands of devoted fans and a life behind protective walls. They want their freedom back … without knowing what the future holds.

The film delves into the lives of the band, accompanying Bill and Tom through Californian deserts and visiting Gustav and Georg in their hometown, Magdeburg, on the banks of the river Elbe.. They talk about the price of success, the inseparability of twins, about love, sexuality, home and music. The band comes together in a Berlin studio to produce their new album and to prepare for their next world tour.

With steely determination and a lifetime of experience already, the band follows their childhood dream: the pop fairy tale that is Tokio Hotel continues…

Tokio Hotel: “There are things that you would like that have never happened”

If to you’re from 20 to 30, you of course remember them very lively. But if you are a girl, teenage recollections your are very tightly connected with them, with first love, walls in posters and total hysteria. Tokio Hotel still have magic authority above an audience. Even if you once forgot about them, they made it necessary to recall.
Before the concert in Ekaterinburg, We sat down with German kings of hearts to talk about getting old, reading fan-fiction, bucket lists and how it is easier for boys out there..

They turned out to be very pleasant and funny men. And yes, we do not recommend to look them directly in the eyes

— I was thinking what to ask, because you have been asked questions over and over again for like what? 15 years, 12 years, I don’t even know at this point anymore. So I wanted to do something like Google autocomplete interview, I started to Google you and that turned out quite boring, because, apparently, everybody wants to know the same thing about you — what is you height. Which is, by the way, as far as I see not as big as I thought. (Georg is laughing)

Tom: What?! (everybody is laughing)

— Actually, I thought you two (the twins) are taller.

Twins: Really? Hmm…
Bill: I feel like we’re shrinking already…

— Getting old?

Bill: Yeah, because we’re getting older. I feel like I was a little taller before. (laughing)
Tom: We’re 27, it’s not a joke!
Bill: It’s over already. (laughing)

— Anyway, I decided to ask just anything I want. That all made me think: have you ever Googled yourself?

Bill: Yeah. I mean I try not to. Nowadays I don’t really do it anymore, but yeah… If something, that you hate, coming out, or if there’s a new album, you do that and you look, what people say and what people think, you read reviews. I mean, yeah, you do it every once in a while. If it gets too negative or there’s some stupid tabloid thing out there, I try not to read it, I want to stay away from it. Some really stupid stuff came up recently, that people were telling us about, so we tried not to read any articles. Because we don’t want to get distracted by that.

— Does it make you sad?
