After Five in the Forest Primeval (German: Nach Fünf im Urwald), sometimes also known as It's a Jungle Out There, is a 1995 German romantic comedy film directed by Hans-Christian Schmid and starring Franka Potente in her first film role. The film tells the story of a 17-year-old girl Anna who, in search of freedom in an urban environment, runs away from home with a boy who has a crush on her. Her parents launch into a search for Anna and, during the process, reminisce about their own search for freedom in their youth.

The film was intended to be a television film and had a screening in October 1995 at the Hof International Film Festival where Hans-Christian Schmid was awarded the Best New Director Promotional Award (also known as Eastman Support Prize for Up-and-Coming Talent).[1][2][3] During the festival, the German distributing company Senator Film picked up the film for theatrical distribution[1] and the film opened in German theaters on April 25, 1996. At the 1996 Bavarian Film Awards, Franka Potente won the award for Best Young Actress.[4][5][6] The film was also nominated for accolades at the 1997 Bavarian Film Awards where it won the award for Best Production.[7]
