In an interview with the BBC, Zimmer said: "Going. It's the sort of stuff. God, I just felt so lucky because this thing paid my rent for the longest time."

Rosalie Goes Shopping
Rosalie Goes Shopping is a 1989 English-language German film directed by Percy Adlon and starring Marianne Sägebrecht, Brad Davis, Judge Reinhold. Rosalie Greenspace is an expatriate German woman living in rural Arkansas with her eccentric American husband Ray, who works as a crop-duster airplane pilot, they have seven children: Schnucki, the eldest son, a US Army soldier stationed out of state. Rosalie loves to shop too much to let a little thing like no money stop her; every day she goes on lavish shopping sprees in the nearby small town of Stuttgart where she forges checks, uses false credit cards, other means to supplement her livelihood with purchases of fancy foods for Kindi to cook and various clothing and appliances for her large house. A devout Catholic, she has a twisted view on religion when she goes every day to a small church and confesses her sins of stealing and swindling to a local priest, believing that if she confesses her crimes to her priest, her "sins" will not become sins anymore.
Schatzi is dating April, a girl from his high school whom he brings over to the house one day to meet the family for dinner. April is awkward about the Greenspace family's antics as well as their obsession with watching videotaped TV commercials as their only form of entertainment, she soon leaves Schatzi. Rosalie's parents come for a visit one day from Germany, Schnucki arrives for a visit after taking a leave of absence from the military. During the week of the visits, both of Rosalie's parents, as well as Schnucki, find her self-indulgent spending of other people's money illegal, but Rosalie appears oblivious to her own actions. However, when the local shopkeepers no longer take her bad checks or bad credit cards, Rosalie is reduced to stealing from her eldest daughter, Barbara's, checking account to buy gifts for her parents, which earns Barbara's wrath and contempt as she realizes that her mother is out of control with stealing and spending. After Rosalie's parents leave to return to Germany, Schnucki returns to the Army, Rosalie is left all by herself as she ponders an end to her spending lifestyle.
Rosalie is forced to abandon her daily food shopping sprees to purchase expensive food for Kindi to cook and instead is forced to bring home cheap fast food and take-out pizza for the family in place of the fancy daily dinners that Kindi prepares. In the meantime, Ray begins having problems with his eyesight and nearly crashes his crop-duster biplane during a routine run which gets him fired from the aviation company he works at. Life now begins looking pretty bleak for Rosalie until Barbara pushes her into buying a "guilt gift" of a PC. After first using the computer for some Internet and Prodigy surfing skills, Rosalie gets an inspiration when she has a talk with her friendly mailman, where after she confides in him about her financial predicament, he tells her: "when you're $100,000 in debt, it's your problem, but when you're $1 million in debt, it's the bank's." Impersonating a wealthy German businesswoman, Rosalie travels to the state capital of Little Rock and meets with a bank president for a large loan to open a new multinational corporation which she receives due to her falsified credentials she forged.
Afterwards, Rosalie now has access to the bank's financial records and, with the help of her new PC, she evolves from a "master shopper" into a "master hacker", Rosalie is soon back spending money once again. As the film comes to an end, using her new ill-gotten wealth of $2 million that she steals from the large bank, buys for Ray a new crop-dusting airplane so he can open his own crop-dusting business, has him visit an eye doctor where he gets a pair of eyeglasses which cures him of his vision problem, she goes back to her church where she confesses her latest crimes to the bewildered priest and plots to flee the country with her family with her new millions to use abroad. As a farewell gift for the priest, she purchases a large and brand-new copper bell for the church.
