Frau Böhm says No is a German television film from 2009. The film was produced by Zeitsprung Entertainment for WDR . The first broadcast was on October 21, 2009 in the first .


Senta Berger plays the principled clerk Rita Böhm, who is solely responsible for the salaries and bonuses of the board members and who refuses to order unlawful bonus payments from her point of view and indirectly triggers investigations by the public prosecutor for breach of trust.


The film takes up the circumstances of the Mannesmann takeover. Despite being alienated as Hewaro AG (Mannesmann) and Redwater ( Vodafone ), the role models are clear. There are also allusions to the VW corruption affair .


“Excellent (television) film. The portrait of a reluctant rebel who uses conventional means, but with touching clarity and without clichés, tells of the liquidation of the old Federal Republic and describes a cycle of greed and addiction to profit. "

“In calm settings that barely show internal eruptions, the born yes-man, Ms. Böhm, learns to say no. In the end, however, the facts become complex in an exhausting way. "

"[...] a calm, pessimistic and precise portrayal of customs from the German executive floors [...]"

“After her Stasi victim-perpetrator drama '12 means: I love you 'and her RAF victim-perpetrator drama' Schattenwelt ', director Connie Walther puts her finger into an open wound for the third time. And Senta Berger is her greatest asset. The actress, who is seen as a role model by many in the country and who once ran across the mouth of Siemens man Heinrich von Pierer on a talk show , made a major contribution to the fact that this film could be shown in prime time. Your little plea for decency is the big moment of this film. And it's nice to watch in small gestures how the wallflower she is playing even gains strength and self-confidence. "

- Peter Zander ( Die Welt )
