Can anyone identify this game? It appears to be a dexterity game. The screenshot is from the 2002 German film Mostly Martha:

Yes, that would be it. I don't think I ever played it as a kid.

Ooh a little higher, now a bit to the left, a little more, a little more, just a bit more. Oooh yes, that's the spot!

Mikado? Highly unlikely ...

German kid? Then it is probably a WWIII cosim.

Mikado is a really nice game for kids, when it is your turn, you concentrate really hard not to move a wrong stick, whent it is not your turn you concentrate really hard to see if the other one moves a wrong stick.

And if you concentrate hard enough, you can see sticks moving by themselves, without any drugs...

I have fond memories of this game.
