Old people's home recreates famous movie scenes for unforgettable calendar
Pensioners ape 'Rocky', 'Titanic', 'Bond' and more
The Contilia Retirement Group in Essen, Germany has made perhaps the cutest calendar ever – and there isn't so much as a Siberian husky pup in sight (scroll to see the gallery).
Seniors were dressed as leading men and ladies for the photoshoot, recreating iconic moments from films such as Rocky, Titanic and The Blues Brothers.
Wilhelm Buiting, 89, made a particularly fetching James Bond, while 86-year-old Marianne Brunsbach stepped into Audrey Hepburn's black dress to recreate the Breakfast at Tiffany's poster.
The oldest resident to take part was Walter Loeser, who at 98 still looked pretty suave on a motorcycle.
The calendars were given out to residents at the home but look set to be distributed outside of the communal dining room, with German press reporting that 5000 have been printed.
