3096 (3096 Tage) is a 2013 German drama film directed by Sherry Hormann. The film is based on the true story of Natascha Kampusch, a 10-year-old girl and her eight-year ordeal being kidnapped by Wolfgang Přiklopil. Northern Irish actress Antonia Campbell-Hughes portrays Kampusch,[1] while Thure Lindhardt plays Přiklopil.

The film was writer Bernd Eichinger's last film before his sudden death, and Martin Moskowicz, head of TV and Film at Constantin Film, and Ruth Toma (Gloomy Sunday) took over.[2]


The 10-year-old Natascha Kampusch (Antonia Campbell-Hughes) is kidnapped by Wolfgang Přiklopil (Thure Lindhardt) and spends 8 years in captivity until she manages to escape.



In late 2012, there were concerns about Campbell-Hughes' drastic weigh-loss for the film, however she stated in an interview in the Evening Standard that she wanted "to suffer as much as she - Kampusch - did".[3] She also noted that she has received a torn Achilles tendon, a broken toe, a fractured rib and various cuts and bruises, due to the film set being similar to the dungeon Kampusch was placed in.[4]
