Irm Hermann (born Irmgard Hermann on 4 October 1942) is a German actress.

Hermann became a publishing clerk after finishing school and worked as a secretary for ADAC when she met Rainer Werner Fassbinder in 1966, who convinced her to quit her job to work with him, despite her lack of formal training as an actor. In the same year, Hermann already starred in her debut role in Fassbinder's short film The City Tramp (Der Stadtstreicher), and from then on went to play major characters in 19 of Fassbinder's movies including The Merchant of Four Seasons (Händler der vier Jahreszeiten, 1971) and The Bitter Tears of Petra von Kant (Die bitteren Tränen der Petra von Kant, 1972). Beyond their professional relationship, Irm Hermann soon became one of Fassbinder closest confidantes.

From the mid-1970s, she worked more often for other directors. Since Fassbinder's early death, she has acted in numerous German film and television productions. Hermann starred in the horror drama Die Blutgräfin (2011).

Through a business misadventure, the European Axel Heyst (Willem Dafoe) ends up living on an island in what is now Indonesia with a Chinese assistant Wang (Ho Li). Heyst visits a nearby island when a female band is playing at a hotel owned by Mr. Schomberg. Schomberg attempts to force himself sexually on one of the band members, Alma (Irene Jacob). Alma is about to be sold to Schomberg by the corrupt leader/director of the band who has enslaved the women for prostitution. She begs Heyst to help her. Having sworn-off close relationships because of his past, he is challenged by her request, but accedes to help her. He escapes from the island with Alma, and they go back to his island and eventually become lovers. Schomberg seeks revenge by attempting to frame Heyst for the "murder" of a man who had died of natural causes and later by sending three desperadoes Pedro, Martin Ricardo (Rufus Sewell), and Mr. Jones (Sam Neill) to Heyst's island with a lie about treasure hidden on the island. Upon their arrival at the island, much intrigue ensues. Jones kills Pedro and then Martin in a climactic scene in which Alma is also shot and soon dies in the arms of Axel. After burning his compound and burying Alma, Axel disappears from the island but is rumored to have later been seen as a drifter in San Francisco and other ports of call. Alma's victory, in death, is having saved Axel's life in that he has again made connections with others.

Heinrich Lohse is a manager at the "Deutsche Röhren AG" who increasingly tends to lose control. After ordering a 40-year supply of typewriting paper and erasers (because of quantity rebate), his boss forces him to retire. Confronted with this new situation, Lohse's family reacts in shock. It turns out Heinrich's wife Renate and his son Dieter were quite comfortable with the absent husband and father and don't want to see their situation disrupted. Heinrich, however, refuses to allow his career to end and immediately begins to rearrange the Lohse household based on his questionable managerial skills. This leads to a steadily increasing series of conflicts with his wife, son, and friends that get more and more bizarre.

Allemagne, 1990. La chute du Mur de Berlin éclot sur la réunification allemande des deux Allemagnes jusqu'ici séparés, les Allemands de l'est pouvant enfin se mêler à ceux de l'ouest. Mais cette intégration n'est pas du goût de tout le monde. Certains y voient comme l'invasion d'anciens habitants de l'ex République Démocratique Allemande. Cette invasion pacifique plonge une famille de bouchers de la République fédérale Allemande dans une frénésie meurtrière que rien n'arrête : dans la cuisine abandonnée d'un hôtel, elle assassine ceux qui traversent l'ancien mur, soit leurs anciens ennemis les anciens citoyens de la RDA...
