Toni, male, midwife – A round thing

Sündenbock is a 2020 German television film directed by Sibylle Tafel. It is the third episode of the ARD series Toni, männlich, Hebamme starring Leo Reisinger as Munich midwife Toni. The German premiere took place on 17 April 2020 on the ARD channel Endlich Freitag in the German public broadcaster Ersten.


As no doctor is on hand, midwife Toni Hasler gives birth to the child of Fanny Brandstetter and Nico Tschauner. This intervention does not remain without consequences for long, because a few days later the newborn is found to have two broken ribs, which leads to a police investigation. Inspector Hallmoser is the investigator in charge of finding out why Toni really gave birth herself and whether he is to blame for the child’s injury. Toni turns to his ex-wife Hanna, who is a high-profile lawyer. She agrees to help her ex-husband, but she will also consider him as the perpetrator.


Sündenbock was filmed in Munich and the surrounding area from 24 June 2019 to 23 August 2019. The film was produced by Bavaria Fiction.[1]


The critics of the TV magazine TV Spielfilm pointed with their thumbs to the side and awarded two points out of a possible three for humor and one for suspense. They summed up: “Comfortable light fare for in between”.[2]
