Another contender is Otto - Der Film (1985), which had 14 million viewers in West Germany and in the GDR, but since there weren't any records about viewer's attendance in the GDR, the number of 14 million could be ambiguous. Otto - Der Film (1985) had 11 million approved viewers in West Germany making Manitou's Shoe (2001) technically more successful.
